Maybe Once A Week Will Work?

I have had a strange summer season.  I think Pittsburgh has had one of the hottest summers on record.  We are still registering close to 90 here!  Towards the end of the summer, I am usually not as interested in what's going on and even more so when it is hot!  I don't know how my friends in Texas do it every day.  I bow to your love of herbs and gardening!

I blogged every day in July and that was a bit too much.  I just don't have the time any more to blog every day and I was getting a bit long in the tooth, herbally speaking.  So I'm going to try doing a once a week overview of what's been going on.  Since I haven't done a post since late August, I will try to catch you up on my activities and the herb garden.  As you can see it is all about raspberries, sunflowers and a birthday thrown in!  Thank goodness for the raspberries because we aren't going to get enough grapes for jelly because of black rot and we don't have any apples because of a late frost!  It is just the way things go.  The weeds are monstrous as usual.  The Herbal Husband has been doing a lot of things to keep the garden going.  He keeps going as I get lost in everything!  It is getting overwhelming.  I hope that if I am here in the garden early next year, things will go a bit better!

So I am going to try to do an overview once a week of what's been going on.  You can always reach me if you have a question about a specific herb or problem that is occurring in your herb garden.  I am always just a click away!  Won't pin down a specific day of the week that I will post.  Will just try to be here once a week!  BTW, we have the ickies and stickies back and almost 90 the next couple of days!  Yikes!  Always love September's arrival because it brings cooler temperatures.  Not this year!  Talk to you soon!

I'm blogging less myself. I hope you will post as often as you feel comfortable with.

Your berries look of so delicious! As does the tiramisu, which is one of my favorite desserts.

You look happy with your sunflowers.

Have a nice evening and a great rest of this week ~ FlowerLady

I know exactly how you feel.I'very cut back to twice a week and sometimes that is hard to do. It has definitely been a different gardening year here!

I thought I responded to this yesterday but I guess not :( Blogging every day is hard and I gave it up a while ago. I try to do it twice a week now but sometimes don't even get that done. The heat has come back here too and it's miserable but we are supposed to have a cool down this weekend. Hoping it's so :)

Oh I've had quite enough of the stickies and ickies!! lol Spending a lot of my days indoors in the A/C and sipping tea. It's been a very buggy year for us in Texas. Lack of winter last year didn't help and then all the rain....mosquitoes YUCK. I pray for a healthy winter, but then let's not over do it either. Much love and prayers for a much better season this next spring. xo
