the show must go on – and so must the fertilizer

And so it begins.

The soil has been treated with organic fertilizer (Vita Veg 6:3:4(16) by Talborne Organics), and this week the goal is to make room for new seedlings by cutting back on the things that have completely taken over, i.e. mint, oregano, sage.

Rather than waste huge baskets-full of good herbs, my aim is to wash and either freeze or dry them. When is all this industrious harvesting going to take place? Good question! Perhaps I should capitalize on that early morning slot that parents of small children are lumped with every day. A very nice time to be out in the garden, after all!

One thing I’ll say for this product – it doesn’t make my whole garden and home stink like a cesspot. It don’t exactly smell like roses, but it’s mild and mostly inoffensive.
