Herbs and things

Herb harvesting time again.  My plants were all getting a bit top-heavy.
Trying to figure out the best place to hang them all...
My kitchen smells so good now.

Our first basketful of garden produce here! 

My helpful picking buddy,
who needs to learn that we pick the red tomatoes.

It's such a joy to see the difference the gardens have made to the bare front of the shed since April when Ben helped me dig beds into the gravel-dirt...

So much beauty in one place! Goodness. The peppers! Salsa, here we come! Your helpers are the best. I melt.

Auntie Meredith said...

Are you making yo yo's with those fabric circles? Can't wait to see what beautiful thing they become.

Kat said...

Yep, they're yo-yos, Auntie. I'll show you when I finish. :)
It made my day to see your name here!

Kat said...

Hi, Mama, too. :)
My helpers are indeed the best!
(My table actually *was* that clean in the mid-afternoon...so why can't it be at 10pm? ;))

All those herbs remind me that I need to get out to my garden and starting cutting and drying!
Your new veggie gardens look wonderful!

Where do you get your cloth diapers if you don't mind me asking. Are they Green Mountain prefolds? How do you like them?

Kat said...

Yes, they're Green Mountain prefolds and I love them! There are so many different kinds out there, but if I had to buy them again I would still get these. I use Green Mountain's covers too.
