Don’t Forget

 

 

 

 

To get your copy of Country Garden’s Magazine!

I produced this story, along with Kate Carter Frederick…how to make a very easy and functional garden apron.

Country Gardens is even giving away an apron!

Sunny September

A Wedding

image

A perfect September afternoon for a wedding.  This little bundle of garden greens, corn flowers, and lavender will be carried by the flower girl.

Welcome September

September arrived today.

I spent the day harvesting tomatoes, peppers and herbs.

Spent perennials were trimmed back.

Sunflower heads harvested and drying in the greenhouse.

A little fire was started to relax after a full day.

The day ends with a walk around the garden. Gates are shut for the evening.

Foraging

What our grandparents did is now the “new thing”

Foraging.

 What I grew up knowing as, “living off the land”.

A recent cooking show I watched featured two chef’s competing against each other with foraged ingredients.

I found myself poking around the internet for Rose hip recipes, so much more than teas and jellies.

Shhh, don’t tell my family they have eaten Nettles this Summer.

I seem to have a bumper crop of those tasty weeds!

Rose hips aren't quite ripe yet.
