The other thing that we were anxious to see is the fabulous herb garden that is maintained by the unit! Can I tell you that it is one of my favorite herb gardens in the eastern half of the United States. Really! They have done their research and have really maintained a quality herb garden. I told Bonnie that we will have to come back in the summer because it would even be better and it was really good now. Looking forward to it already!
I am in the homestretch of making jelly. I made lemon verbena jelly yesterday and today I set up the rose geranium jelly that I will make at the end of the week. Then I will just have pineapple sage to go. The pineapple sage is just so beautiful that I can't cut the leaves yet. I will have my eyes on the temperatures at night. I think we are going to have a succession of 30's and I will have to cut it then. Oh, I almost forgot I have another batch of raspberry jam to do (136 jars)! I was also thinking about making lemon geranium jelly. So many flavors, so little time! Maybe next year!
I still have a lot to cut in the herb garden, chives, lovage, salad burnet (going to make vinegar). And tonight as I was posting this, I remembered there were German chamomile flowers to cut! So had to turn on the outside lights and work in the shadows to cut the flowers that were ready. Crazy or dedicated? I'll let you decide. Hope you have had a great day and evening! Talk to you later.
