I did get to do a herbs harvest of some kind this year after all, in spite of all the weeds in my herb bed.
Today I harvested Tarragon, Yarrow, Lavender, Perforated St John’s wort and Sneezewort. My Thyme, Catnip and Hyssop plants are nowhere to be seen. The weeds are too many and too high. They’ll have to wait until next year.
Otherwise, it looks like there’ll be a lot of cherries and some apples this year. There aren’t a lot of apples, but it looks like we’ll get some red ones this year. I hope we don’t get as much scab this year, and that we’ll get around to pruning the tree next spring. If I could do it myself, I would. But my legs are too short to be able to get down to the tree in March. (Too much snow.)
Here are the latest pictures from the garden (I avoided taking pictures of all the weeds. The tallest ones are over 2 meters (6.5 ft) tall. That’s Hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium), by the way.
