Mary, Mary Quite Contrary....

How does your garden grow?

Our Garden Currently

So far, we are having a pretty good gardening year thanks to all the lovely sunshine we have been getting (ironically, not today though, it is raining). Last year, the sun didn't seem to want to stick around very much, so our garden a very sad and soggy sight.

This year I planted things I knew we would use a lot of; such as three types of leaf lettuce, Swiss chard, zucchini, sugar snap peas, strawberries, herbs: dill, cilantro, oregano, thyme, lemongrass, basil,  sweet basil, rosemary and parsley, chives and spearmint.

Everything, except the zucchini and lemongrass, is tucked nicely into to a 3x5 raised bed that my handy husband made for me.
We also have a few raspberry bushes and one very old, very large  rhubarb plant in the backyard. 

Just planted in the spring: above

Just a few weeks later: below

If anyone has any tips on drying fresh herbs that they would like to share, I would love to hear them!
