Too Much of a Good Thing, I Think!


The Herbal Husband and I discuss (only in the nicest way) about what we are going to do with all of the onions he has let reproduce (only in the nicest way) in the vegetable garden to the distraction of the bed space.  They are the walking or Egyptian onions.  They can be very ornamental but thousands we don't need.  OK, maybe it's hundreds.  The radishes are volunteers.  The Herbal Husband says he cut the tops off 400 extras!  I would say a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the idea.  As my herbal companion, Bonnie, says we can start our own farmer's market.  Too many permits!  I hope you have too much of a good thing as well.  We are a lot cooler than yesterday.  Still working on clearing and planting.  Hopefully I'll show you the results soon.  Don't forget to get in on the Herb Companion magazine giveaway.  I forgot to mention one comment per person, please.  Talk to you later.

Love your gardens! Imagine a farmer's market! Too bad there is too many hoops to jump. What happened to just being able to sell amazing fruits from the land. I'm very intrigued by that Lavender book...;)Just planted some lemon verbena and thought of you my dear friend. ;) Alyssa

Well acquainted with those walking onions...my goodness they are prolific aren't they!!

I have a good thing going on here - and like Goldilocks - it is just right...we just returned from an evening out and when we walked into the house, the gentle smell of the night blooming jasmine was in the air as it blossomed in the darkened sunroom.

Well, TO, when you let The Herbal Husband decide, they do walk ALL OVER! My clothing reeked of onions and could stand on their own from the smell! HA! Oh, delicious smell of the night blooming jasmine. Ours is out and not doing much yet. Trying to recoop from being indoors. Thanks for stopping by. I need to get over to see you. xxoo Nancy
