Saturday Evening Harvest

Good Evening Gardeners, After we got our van all packed for our antique shop tomorrow I was able to go out to the garden and harvest some of the herbs. The weather weenies are calling for a frost up North, so I did not want to take a chance. It actually was a bit cool out, but nice to be out there. I picked, Pineapple Sage, Rose Geranium and Lemon Verbena. The Rose Geranium is on the mud porch and boy does it smell sweet. The other two are in the Family Room. I have off all next week as we will be out at Kutztown, PA starting on Thursday thru Saturday for their three day Antique Show, but Monday I will have time to work some more with my herbs, I will be cutting Lemon Balm and Spearmint. The marigolds that I took a chance on in the middle of the Summer and planted in a old wheel barrow, look beautiful, we took pictures, but the camera is packed away with the show stuff, I will post a picture next week. Have a great Sunday, enjoy the last few days of Summer.

Hi everyone....been so busy with open house at the store I haven't visited here very often...glad you are carrying on! My herb garden is ready to harvest again....but not sure when I will find the time. (sad face) Today it was so cool....55 degrees...and really made me think winter was coming early....that is NOT A GOOD THING ....I am not a winter person...(another sad face) !!
I have never made anything with pineapple sage....and was surprised that it is eatable...always thought it was just ornamental. Fun to learn something new everyday!!
Andrea - your pineapple sage is so pretty....I can smell it right thru the computer....!!!

I WAS........

........ just cruising thru the blog and came across a post by me, but there was nothing there. Hmmm, wonder what that's about.
