Matt's Herbary

I need to do a post soon documenting the giant flop my garden did this year -- well, some stuff did really well like onions and peppers, taters were normal, kale was great till a deer jumped the fence and ate that and the cabbage. But there's no canning 'maters and beans this year, and the squash all did poorly.

But my herbs did well!

Sunday I had some Thyme, Tarragon, & Oregano that was ready to bottle up:

Then I picked Basil, Tarragon, Thyme, Spearmint:

Tonight was some more Tarragon, Parsley, Lavender, and another mint.

I put up two new strings this year, and I used a turnbuckle on one side so I can keep the string taught after experiencing serious string sagging last year.

(And after these herbs are dried and put away, it'll be time to paint the kitchen ceiling and finally trim that window!)
