garden update

since i wrote in an earlier post about my garden, i thought i’d put in an update as well. despite the off and on torrential downpours battling against the ridiculously hot and humid days that are in the 90’s, the garden is flourishing! as you can see, my herb garden has really taken off. the mint has grown especially well, and i must say that i’ve used the oregano much more than i expected (the mint is destined to be dried and used for tea this winter…but that doesn’t stop me from adding it to lemonade now)!
