What's in my Garden this week?
Hello September, Summer is winding down yet this is the time of year when our gardens produce the best harvest. The early spring rain gave every living thing a very late start and these last few weeks of warmer temperatures and full sunshine my garden is looking...well quite nice! This year we had an amazing crop of garlic, eggplant, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, butternut squash, melons, basil, oregano, chamomile, catnip, fennel, mints and edible flowers! Our baby Americana chickies have grown up and begun laying brilliant blue eggs! We also harvested some fresh honey from our hives. No need to go shopping...I think I'll just shop in my own backyard! Now that is the definition of sustainable.
