Lovely Baskets

My new friend Joy picked up her little bird baskets this morning. Thanks Lennie for sending her to me. My mother, Judy has been making the crafts for my baskets, she is amazing. Since I was a little girl she has been making sachets and quilted hot pads for christmas presents and now I get to put them in these sweet little baskets.

I am planning out my fall garden. I will miss all the tomatoes and fresh basil, so to save some of the summers bounty, this week i am going to begin harvesting and drying herbs from around the garden. Basil, oregano, sage and rosemary. My garden is already at its end of summer transition. Getting ready for all the cold crops. I plan on keeping this fall planting pretty basic, greens and a few root veggies. Possible some cabbage to make sauerkraut. All this in anticipation to be used for fall and winter basket orders.
