Bye to June, Hello to July! Yikes!

First Batch of Raspberries Set Up June 30, 2016!
First Batch of the 2016 Raspberry Jam Season, July 1, 2016!
So I didn't have such a productive blogging month in June.  Hopefully July will be a bit better.  Am going to try the 31 days of blogging technique I used last December.  I will do my best to catch you up on what's going on in the herb garden and trips.  Yes, I said trips.  I took a short but eventful trip with my herbal companion, Bonnie ten days ago.  OK, we had afternoon tea and bought herbs.  Our two favorite pastimes when we are together.  We are very guilty!  Here are some of the herbal treasures I got from Well Sweep Herb Farm

These Need To Be Planted In a Hurry!
Been working diligently to find empty spaces!  It is a huge task!  So hopefully you will see my progress or should I say our progress because without The Herbal Husband's help it wouldn't be possible in the coming days.   So Facebook reminded me this morning that my first batch of raspberry jam last season was set up today.  So I already have a batch done a day sooner!  My summer has begun. We have sort of cooled down in the weather department here in the 'Burgh.  Maybe a bit of rain today, but a warmer weekend with no rain to look forward for the holiday!  So I will just be here blogging.  Please stop by if you get the chance!  Talk to you soon!

Every time I see I see your raspberry jam post I tell myself I need to plant some... still just telling myself :)
