  • Herb garden flourishes, inspiring tarragon recipe

    Oh my goodness, do I have tarragon this year. It has exploded into what I would call a bush of tarragon.

    That is okay though because it makes me really feel like a good gardener, even though I’m not. I am just lucky. 

    Would you believe that I have plants finally coming up that I planted a couple of years ago and thought they were dead? I guess with all of this rain, they finally decided to raise their lovely heads. It is so amazing.  I truly feel blessed.

    There was a good crowd on the Courthouse Square for First Friday this weekend. I think it is one of the really nice things about our small town, and try not to ever miss that special evening.
