I made a trip back to LE Gardens this morning. It's a source of excellent plants and a beautiful spot to visit. I have high hopes for a nice harvest of:

Strawberries. I envision putting up jam for our winter treat and for gifting, strawberry pies, strawberry shortcake and lots of juicy red berries to toss into salads.

Herbs. It was hard to leave any of these healthy plants at the nursery. Limited by space,

I chose tarragon, rosemary, flat leaf parsley, spearmint, basil (lots) and sage for now.

They are all planted.

I'm exhausted. Farming is hard work!
