This must be a morning glory vine. Now that I cannot take care of the garden so much, the wild morning glory vines are everywhere.
|I wonder what this plant is. It is growing on the fence in the far end of our backyard. I tolerate the plant as long as it does not overwhelm the yard.|
|These are asparagus needles. They completed their second season this year. I guess, I can now expect a 'bountiful' asparagus harvest next spring. I hope the asparagus thrive well in the conditions that the plants are in.|
|Ah, these are sphagnum moss. They make the ground soft under my feet and I love walking on them. Now I just read that sphagnum moss may be useful for cleaning the water. Instead of using chlorine, sphagnum moss may be used instead. I guess I need to read on this some more.|
|This is a picture of my poor collard green. I love collard greens so I planted some last year and this year. We are in the northeast. When are collard greens harvested? I heard that they need to be harvested during the cold season so that the leaves will not be too bitter. But the leaves turn yellow in the meantime. What do I do?|
|Rosemary! Normally, Rosemary is not a perennial in the Northeast. The snow always kills the plant. But last year, owing to the mild winter, this rosemary plant survived. So now, I have a rather lush plant. I will harvest the leaves soon and freeze them for future use.|
|Golden Raspberry. This is one of our best plant buys last years. Raspberries, I found out, are quite prolific. They not only multiply fast, but they also yield fruit from late spring until fall.|
|Thyme. It is a perennial in our place. It spreads quite well too. It does not even die out during the winter.|
Parsley. This is the first time I planted parsley. The aroma of newly snipped parsley is so wonderful - lemony and fresh. I will harvest these leaves and freeze them for future use too.
Simple Woman's Daybook, a place I used to visit and participate in until life got a little too busy for me also has a spin-off link-up place too. It is called The Simple Woman's Kitchen and Garden. I think that my herbs should qualify my post to the group so I will go there too. :-)
Please visit and THE SIMPLE WOMAN for more lovely entries.
God bless you.
