Very soon my kitchen will be halved in size. As soon as the weather cools down (and stays PUT) I will be bringing in my patio furniture and once again-I will have a kitchen table. I have enjoyed the nice open floor of my 'summer kitchen' but the extra table/counter space will come in quite handy during apple season.
The other day, when we were having that cold spell (not so anymore-it will be 87 degrees today!) I brought in quite a few plants, cut off some herbies to dry, and did just some general overall plant preparations. Here are some of my herbies...hung to dry over the door in the kitchen.
I hope to house quite a few herbie pots during the winter, because I think I have gotten spoiled using fresh herbs. Oh the SMELL of them.
See the lavendar? That is ALL that my baby lavendar plants produced this year. Well, that minus a few stalks I tucked into washclothes when company came.
SOMEDAY, I will have lavendar plants with MASS profusions of aromatic purple beads lining the way to my door. I promise you that.
