|on right--cilantro, my nemesis!|
|various dead herbs--basil and parsley :(|
Things have been busy around the Bumble Lush Homestead, some of it fun, but most of it work related (blah). As a result, I have neglected my gardens, both real and in blogger land. My regrets to my online garden friends for not responding to comments or visiting your sites. I also apologize to my herbs and to my cat's oat grass for letting you all die. (How the heck do you kill cat grass?? I didn't think it was possible). This is all quite frustrating for many reasons. I hate that I'm wasting perfectly good plants, but also, space is such a premium in my little container garden that I really get upset when something dies.
The cilantro is another story. Cilantro has been our nemesis plant for two years running now. Maybe Year 3 will be the charm?
I don't want to end this post or start my weekend on a negative note, so I will wrap up with this picture of a recent harvest. We went to a BBQ last Sunday and I didn't have time to get a pie, or flowers, or some other kind of hostess gift. So we picked a few fresh veggies from our garden, and our hosts were very happy. The husband LOVES to cook. We collected cucumbers, Early Girl tomatoes, cayenne peppers, a yellow bell pepper, a Spanish pepper, and a jalapeno--all freshly picked! That bag smelled so good. Happy Weekend!
