Well, Memorial Day weekend is here and has brought summer's heat! We planted lots of seedlings last night. The peppers have a few blooms and I can't wait to be picking them! We hope to do some more work after the heat of the day and I'm planning to get my herb garden seeded for this year's annuals. I'm planting Queenette basil, a Thai variety I was very pleased with last year. Some new ones I have this year are borage, white mustard and lime basil. I'm trying catnip again and hoping it does better than last year, it didn't really germinate. The oregano, chives, parsley, sage, thyme and lemon basil all overwintered well and are really taking off. I'm also glad to see peppermint coming up neat the creek, and my pineapple mint is coming back despite the prunings the goats gave it last year! I can't wait to be picking fresh vegetables too!
