It's a Jungle Out There

This is the after picture of my little garden. Just imagine a bunch of teenagers left to their own devices for a few weeks only they are plants with no self-control. It was so bad that they were reaching out and grabbing us as we walked by. If a plant smacks you in the crotch as you walk by, it's just not a good sign. So I had at it and at times, I thought that I needed a machete. But now it actually, looks neat and is not trying to molest anyone.
And for all that work we got a bowl of dill seeds that I'm drying, 5 bags of chives, 3 bags of dill, and 3 bags of oregano in a pear tree. Maybe it is too soon for Christmas songs.
I gave some to one of the ladies that I clean for and Den gave the rest to some friends that he has at work. Who knew he had friends?
Have a great day,
SonyaAnn

Very nice looking little garden. I just love dill--it's one of my favorite flavors--right up there with lemon and cinnamon. I'm glad y'all can walk by unmolested now!! Have a wonderful day.

What a great little garden! It so fun to eat the fruits of you labor.. If I had a garden here it would be all burned up by now.. although it is a little overcast today and the weather man is saying rain. But I am not getting my hope up! How crazy, I woke up at 6:00 and it is overcast but still 85 degrees out, I shouldn't be complaining it was 90 the other day when I woke up.. Can you tell the heat is getting to me!

Hope you are having a nice cool day! ~Linda

Sheial-Thank you, I wish that we had a bigger garden but I know now that I couldn't handle it. It would be too much work for one person.
Have a great week!

SonyaAnn said...

Linda Robinson-I love hot weather but I think that even I would get sick of how hot it is there. You would probably like it here. We do a lot of cool wet weather. It's cooler here than warm. We should swap!
Have a great week!

Nice haircuts for your herbs...maybe you should have gone into hair styling/barbering...lol
Next batch you should dry them so you can have home grown herbs this winter....growing herbs, eh? Any I can smoke?teehee

Lisa B. said...

lmao. I had the same thought when hubby said he was taking some peppers to work to give to a couple of friends.

I feel bad after looking at your pic. My gardens on both side of the walk molest us, I was secretly enjoying it. haha

SonyaAnn said...

slugmama-SMOKE!!!! LOL! Thanks to you I now have a second stream of income. Don't tell anyone!
You're crazy!

SonyaAnn said...

Lisa B.-Take it where you can get it! That is my feeling on the whole thing!
Thank you for coming to see me!

Frances said...

Sluggy, you let out the secret of SonyaAnn's homegrown herbs.

THAT is why Den has friends at work. LOL!

Nice "harvest" SonyaAnn. ;-)

Frances said...

Hey, SonyaAnn, you and Lisa B could probably charge admission to your "molesting gardens." Yet another income stream.

What a cute little garden! I love dill! I really should try growing herbs sometime, could be fun LOL It's so nice to be able to grow our own food and pick it fresh from the garden. Just wish I had more land to grow lots more! thanks for sharing.... now I'm thinking of the dill dip i like to make with nice warm bread yum!
Blessings, Jill

Frances-I just sit here and laugh! I'm not very good at it if I'm still having money problems!!

SonyaAnn said...

Frances-Instead of the killing fields, its the intrusive patch!

SonyaAnn said...

slugmama-I was a good girl until you came around!

SonyaAnn said...

Jill-Mmmmmmm dill dip! I'm hungry right now and that sounds wonderful. Ice cold dip with crackers.
Thanks for stopping over and making me hungry!

I love dill. It tastes so good when mixed with red potatoes. While I was in St. Louis all my dill got left to its own devices (with no water) and it revolted.

SonyaAnn said...

Pam-Everyone is making me hungry with all the wonderful ideas with dill. So what happened to your dill? Did it die?
