August Is Always Kind Of A Slap In The Face...

It says 'Hey!  Summer isn't gonna last forever!'  On the other hand, football season is nigh!  Anyway, again I'm a bit late for the twice monthly update.  All who care, raise your hand!  That's what I thought...

The west garden is feast and famine.  At the top the herbs are bigger all the time, it seems.  The bottom is barren, the lettuce and the garlic fully harvested.

I think we'll have to get a food dehydrater (or the like) to store herbs for future use.  We have tried to give some away but it seems like nobody cooks with fresh herbs very often.  Oh well, too much bounty.  What kind of problem is that?*

The strawberry garden is still thriving, sending out as many runners as ever.  Containing them is proving to be a daily task, yet the bottom could fill in a little. 

Maybe we will plan ahead a little better next year and find things to plant early, then later and get two rewards for the same area every year.  I better get to like veggies a lot more - or find a steak plant!

*Edit:  I should point out we have been eating our share.  Kate has made her own spaghetti and other sauces and seasoned many other wonderful dishes as well.
