|Herb garden in January|
Harvesting cooking herbs from just outside the door in all weathers including rain and occasionally snow is something we have really enjoyed for the past few years. There's nothing like fresh basil for the pasta in the summer, parsley for just about anything in the winter and spring, and marjoram on the pizza all year round, just exactly how much I want.
|Marjoram and 'Sweetness' daffodil|
As mentioned before, this has been an unusually mild winter. I'm not sure if the cilantro will make it all the way through to spring, especially the two that are stretching to bolt already (what's with that?). The daffodils seen here are "Sweetness" which I have in several places but which bloom earlier here than anywhere else, last year even before the ubiquitous early Ice Follies have ended. This year I notice that the Sweetness foliage is up much taller than Ice Follies, but I don't know if that's unique to this strange season or if I just haven't noticed it before.
Gotta go! Dinnertime!
