U-Pick Herbs need some time to recover from the heavy picking this summer. It was our first year to try this, and we now know that we need a lot more plants! We are planning raised beds so that we can increase the planting space, and number of plants for next summer. Thanks for making this such a success!
At last, we have reached the bountiful period of summer. Now that we’ve had all the sunny, warm weather the plants have had plenty of time to kick in. I needed a reminder of what summer is usually like, so I perused my blog posts from 2009 and 2008. We are clearly a month behind where we usually are with all of these crops. But better late than never!
