My sister, the master gardener was harvesting her vegetable garden yesterday, up in Bishop California. In Lake Havasu City, Arizona on the same day – I was busy planting my indoor herb garden. She keeps telling me to give a real vegetable garden a try, but I seem to have more luck with flowers than vegetables.
I’ve tried planting herbs from seeds. But they just sprout then fizzle. This weekend the local Home Depot had a sale on potted herbs, so I couldn’t resist. Hopefully the herbs will do as well in my kitchen window as my African violet and spider plants.
As soon as I wrap up a few projects for my alter ego, Anna J. McIntyre, I need to get back to Recipe Traditions, A New Generation. Perhaps I can use some of my own homegrown herbs in my recipes. Of course, I will have to let them grow a bit, because at this point, they are simply fresh herbs I purchased at Home Depot instead of the local grocery store.
