Part of Labor Day was spent putting in the fall garden. Most of the vegetables and herbs are still growing like crazy, but we had harvested the lemon basil and most of the Genovese basil, so I had a couple of empty spots in the garden. We also started some herbs and greens in pots. (Above) Swiss chard plants sprouting.
Butter lettuce sprouts
Some volunteer dill sprouts.
After losing every single leaf to a parsley-loving critter while we were on vacation, the parsley staged a comeback and looks great.
We cut down the basil a couple weeks ago but didn’t pull the stalks out of the ground, and now we have more basil coming in. It should do well in the cooler weather for the next few months.
I used to have this stevia plant in the house, then it almost succumbed to a white fly invasion, so I cut it back and moved it outdoors, and now it’s flourishing.
The sage bush looks bushier by the day. I can’t wait to use it in fall roasting recipes.
