Fall is here. . .

Just in time.  Right before the cold hit us. We went from 78°F yesterday to 40°F yesterday morning.  High of 52°F.  

✔Froze more green bell peppers.  We didn't get stuffed peppers in the freezer, but was will be enjoying stuffed pepper soup this winter. By the way, I still haven't yanked the plants on any of the peppers, so who knows.  I just haven't had the time, nor motivation, to get that done.

✔One more medicinal dehydrated - feverfew.  By the way, I specifically grew this for our youngest daughter's migraines.  This year she got the piercing that was to stop them (didn't work).   Next year I should be getting flowers on the plant.

✔Rosemary stems saved.  These will get burned in campfires.

I have a rosemary bush that is 15 years old. I never thought it would survive but it did. I have cut it back every year and used the cuttings for wreaths, evening "camp" fires in the courtyard, my cooking and baking of bread. I even leave sprigs around the house and the smell is wonderful. Sometimes I wish more people would use herbs around the house like us. So much better than wasting money on sprays.

Leanna, rosemary plants here don't live thru winter temps, so I have to bring it inside and it typically dies anyway with a drafty farm house. I do love my rosemary.
