So this has been the perfect summer to grow a kitchen garden. Lots of rain
 and cooler temperatures helped this lavender flourish as well as basil, 
white chocolate mint and rosemary. The best part is bringing some
 inside for a kitchen window bouquet!

Oh, and by the way, today our area experienced record-breaking cold!
 The high here was only 72 F in mid-August.
How has your garden grown this summer?

You are right, this summer has been perfect for my herb garden too. I haven't been able to keep up with using all of them! I guess that means I need to spend more time in my kitchen :)

We tried our hand at snap peas and cabbage this year. We did ok considering we are clueless gardeners.

Very pretty!
My garden has been growing really well. We've had rain, so I've not had to water as much as usual.
Have a wonderful week!

Beautiful lavender! How fun to make a herb bouquet. We had a cooler than normal July and more moisture in August than most can remember. My Father-in-Law says, for our area, any rains after July 4th is a true blessing and we have had several inches.
