Nights Are Cooling

It's mid-September and the herbs are looking a bit overgrown.  Kate said she was going to pick the rest of the basil tonight.  Temps will be in the upper 40's overnight the next few nights.

The strawberry bed is still healthy.  It may be time to look up the best way to winterize the area.

Welcome to September

While I may be a bit incapacitated right now, the blog must go on!   Kate went out and took the pics for me this time.  As you can see it is nothing exciting, it's all just a bit bigger if anything.  The food dehydrator is working on a full batch of basil right now and earlier this afternoon (after these pics) a friend left with a big bag full of stuff.

The strawberry bed in the east garden is still looking good for next year.  Updates have been rather boring lately, but I'm still glad I'm doing it.  It's our first garden, after all.  I will probably continue this somewhat next year.  I'm sure we will be doing things a bit differently in the west garden, perhaps early and late yielding plants as well.  And the strawberries, well, I'll predict right now a bumper crop!
