Plant rambling

I've gotten a lot of work out of my garden lately. At our anniversary party last night, I had extremely fresh basil, mint and oregano for the casseroles and stir-fries. I *could* have pulled in a substitute for cilantro, but I forgot that I had it growing when I was at the grocery store.

At the fondue party, I had chives, basil, lemon grass, and kaffir lime leaves ready for the harvest - yay!

I'm slooowly gearing up for the transition to next year. I think I'm going to give up on the basil soon and let it go to seed, every time I nip off or pinch off a flower it bursts into two flowers two days later. It's like a long, slow, not-terribly-dangerous hydra. I'll keep trimming the cinnamon basil, because I haven't had a chance to cook with it yet, and it's not going to survive the winter - the lemon basil will actually plant itself.

Think I'm going to give up on the stevia. It's just not very interesting. I'll let that space go to egyptian onions. Seems like a better use for my space, and maybe I won't have to go out and buy just one damned green onion.
