Six Word Saturday

Herbs, tomatoes, and flowers - oh my!

This is one of my favorite times of year. The weather is finally changing here. Baby lettuces can be seen in all the fields I pass when I drive to and from work every day, and garden centers are gearing up for planting season for home gardeners.

So far, I've cleaned up last year's herb bed and partially replanted, and this morning I managed to trim up some very overgrown purple fountaingrass. I even washed the windows in my kitchen and dining room so the view out to the backyard is that much nicer. Unfortunately, temperatures rose again this week and the last couple of days have been over 100 degrees. So that's where the outdoor chores ended today. There is still so much to do, but I guess it'll happen all in good time.

Maybe I'll post another list next Thursday - of all the things I'd like to plant this year. It could be a long one!

  1. Ooooooo..herb garden! It's going to freeze here soon, but we are still enjoying plenty of canned veggies from the summer plenty! Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. I have nothing but a black thumb... so jealous of anything home grown!

  3. It's raining and freezing here...still, you couldn't make me want 100 degree weather.

  4. I really admire people like you that have gardening talent. For me, thank goodness for farmer's markets. We had temps in the 20s last weekend and 80's today.

  5. Sounds wonderful, except the 100 degrees. Here is "Crisp evenings, fall colors and pumpkins".

  6. We brought our basil plant inside last night to save it from a freeze. I'm not ready to give up on it yet!

    Thanks for playing 6WS!

  7. Thanks for your comment Janet. Snowballs would melt in a second wouldn't they around here! I am going to plant some tomatoes this year in a pot behind the trailer. I asked the people in the park and they said it was time.
