Each time I’ve been weeding in Woldumar’s herb garden these
last few weeks of summer, I’ve been tempted to trim the hyssop into a more
hedge-like shape, but there are still small white butterflies working hard in
the hyssop flowers. The bees are buzzing
in the anise hyssop (Agastache) and oregano. The garlic chives are in full blossom and
there are a few second blossoms in the regular chives.
Practically all the seeds I started in the spring have
survived except for angelica. I blame it
on the heavy clay soil when we had too much rain followed by the very dry spell
that baked the clay soil hard as a rock.
Just like every other devoted (make that slightly crazy) gardener, I
know there will be better weather next year.
There is still so much for you to enjoy in the garden. The bench has space available. Come sit for a while!
