Saturday Morning Vibes

We have absolutely nothing planned for the day and decided that is ok. So for me I’m starting my morning off with coffee and sock knitting.  I  am working on my November socks this morning and just picked up the gusset stitches for my heel. I am so in love with this yarn!


Later I plan to start my cross stitch project that I shared yesterday and think I might sit outside on our patio for that. It’s supposed in the 70s until later this afternoon, so perfect for being outside and it also will give me the opportunity to think about the herbs I want to pick up at Lowes next Saturday to start potting for our container garden area.


Our cucumbers are going nuts and are full of blooms but I am fearful the nighttime temperatures may start getting to cool for them to make. Fingers crossed that we at least get a couple. 

I just bought the latest issue of Healing Herbs, a special publication from Hobby Farms magazine and I have started reading Alchemy of Herbs by Rosalee de la Foret.  I want to start incorporating more herbs and spices into our meals.  Both my husband and I love flavorful dishes, and this will not only help enhance the taste of our meals but be good for our health too.  So the herbs I am planning to pot will be both for cooking and for tea.  I am rather excited about it and can’t wait to have my fresh herbs again. If anyone is interested, Rosalee has a podcast too and has had many interesting episodes on the benefits of herbs, spices and more.

That’s about it for me today. What are you doing today ?

  1. Garden season is over in my part of the world but I have made notes on my 2022 planner to start another herb and tea container garden next spring. This year I had cilantro, basil, and two kinds of oregano. It was wonderful to have those herbs ready to cut.

    1. Juliann, cilantro, basil and oregano are on my list, along with sage, rosemary and thyme (I love that song by the Simon & Garfunkel). I can’t wait to get a few things potted this fall and the rest will most likely wait until the first of the year.
