A few weeks ago I took a picture of the herb garden. Since then we cleaned out a lot of the older herbs and weeds. I have been in contact with someone who will donate some granite. We've been playing with designs. So this is the empty herb garden.
It will be fun to take photos as the herb garden evolves into something more than just dirt.

In mid-August I tried planting some seeds (beets, radishes and lettuce), and only 2-3 radishes appeared. Last Monday (September 13) I decided to try again with radishes, beets and spinach. It looks like the radishes have appeared in less than a week! Wonder about the spinach and beets......it's been HOT!

Beautiful plants and vegetables keep growing in the garden. But in one corner is the herb garden.....and we didn't pay attention to it. I am hoping to weed and amend with my fellow gardeners so that next spring we can plant herbs. Maybe next fall we can make herb oils.

It is a fun word to say---and it is an interesting tomato. We have some in the garden -- and so does my neighbor. Besides being a fun word, it is also an interesting plant. They are known as the "husk tomato" because the tomato grows in a covering. I can't wait to try some in a tasty dish!
