Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, but no Thyme, yet

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, basil, and no thyme, yet. Today I took the morning to harvest some herbs from the garden. I still have a considerable amount of basil and rosemary to do. The garlic has been in for a few weeks, but I’ll have to plant next year’s crop in the next week or two.

We’ll start the drying hanging like this but eventually move on to the dehydrators to finish. A few things are question marks. The Tumeric plant eas an experiment. So, too tender for the semi-heated greenhouse, or does it come into the house? Some of the bay plants are going into the greenhouse after a suggestion by a greenhouse owner about them being hardy for the temps they’d run into in my cool greenhouse. It’s easy to blunder with experiments. Then you forever commemorate them in memory as the year you grew so and such. The problem is the seed growers and plant sellers are always foisting, I mean tempting us with new plants that they assure us will be luminous successes and make this gardening year go down as a golden memory. Bull pucky!

Anyway, it’s time to wade through the weeds to see what happened to the potatoes. Their bags were last seen the day before my hip surgery. Since then, the weeds have grown in and obscured that section of the garden.

Please send a rescue party if you don’t hear from me for a while.
