A Great Season For Sunflowers!

Sorry to not have been around too much this summer season.  Hope you have all had a great gardening year!  I just had to share one of our sunflowers from our small field.  It's 'Moulin Rouge' from Renee's Garden Seeds or it could be 'Chocolate' as well!  Marked them with sticks, but somehow we didn't get a map made and most of them grew.  Some didn't!  The sticks got moved.  You know how that goes!  Talk to you later.

Hope you had a great Labor Day Weekend. ~Earlene~

MIB - Missing on Blog...

Plase everyone accept my APOLOGIES two fold for not showing up here and for the new girls who have asked to join....you will hear from me very soon for "information" on how to leave posts and become a member.  I have a new computer (and being technically challenged as I am) I am trying very hard to find all my info from the old computer....AND I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Earlene - I have never planted fennel of any kind and haven't a clue how to help you.....having my own problems with catmint showing up EVERYWHERE...(yikes!!)

Don't give up on me yet...XOXO, Judy

Bronze Fennel

This Herb will grow to 4 ft. and is beautiful....but I did not realized how invasive it would become. Any suggestions to get under control would be helpful. ~Blessings~ Earlene

Herb Samplers

I have had these cute small samplers for 15 plus years. I want to make an area in my pantry with Herbs and these Samplers.

Chives peeking through in Spring

Thank you so much for inviting me. I so excited about this blog because I love gardening. I can't spend as much time on it as I want to but try to get out as much as I can. Herbs are great because they take little care and taste so good.
This picture is from 2011 but are the first to pop up.
I look forward to sharing and showing more of my herbs and flowers through the year.
