Herbs-and Kitchen Garden Day~
Kitchen Garden Day falls on Sunday this year...August 23rd,
so because that is a Sunday and not the best day for it...in my circle, we at Sage Hill Farms have decided to make this entire week about the day.
I'll keep you apprised of our doings here at The Beatitudes.
Tomorrow is day one and my schedule will include cleaning out some of the summer garden left-overs. Plants and vines that have given their all and gracefully withered and died.
They will take on a new level of life by adding them to the compost pile where they will turn into rich and nutritious soil for the fall gardens.
The fall/winter gardens will consist of greens ( turnip, mustard, kale, and spinach, beets and cauliflower.
The herb beds are being thinned and one last major cutting back before the cooler weather arrives. ( I know it's August and cool weather is hard to believe right now....but, it will happen.) Herbs need enough time to heal from the cutting and get a good layer of new growth before weather changes.
What is your garden agenda for the week ?
