Happy Labor Day! We hope you enjoy some rest and relaxing this weekend!
There's definitely a bit of a chill in the air now that September has arrived! We've been working hard and are happy to share new savings on some of our Spiced Chai favorites in September's Monthly Promotion Gift Box!
Our Cut Flower and Herb Garden is still going strong and until the first frost or two arrives we will continue to have fresh cut flowers available for local pickup! There's a lot of color out there and it just keeps getting better: sunflowers, zinnias, snapdragons, red amaranth, broom corn, marigolds, lemon balm, artemesia, celosia, chamomile, calendula, and five varieties of basil! So many choices when creating arrangements!
I've had so much fun putting together fresh cut floral arrangements with our homegrown blooms for some special people this year! Truly a joy! If you are local and would like to brighten someone's day with flowers, we'd love to help you do that... contact me or check out this page for more details!
All of our purple tomato seedlings that we planted in the spring have overtaken a large row of the garden and I've been up to my knees in purple tomatoes and loving it! One variety wasn't the best for fresh eating, but they were delicious roasted and then pureed into the best sauce I've ever made! I've canned jar upon jar of it to enjoy this winter! Look for a blog post coming up this month with this and a couple more easy and fun recipes using herbs and such from the garden! I'd like to say all the cabbages did as well as the tomatoes but sadly the groundhog outsmarted my fence and gobbled many of them up! Grr... I guess no homegrown sauerkraut this year!
Wishing you a safe and enjoyable weekend and a groundhog-free garden!
