Realization Of The Day:
It's the first of May. Happy May Day!


  1. I've always had bad luck with sage, but last year my sage grew into a dense jungle and bloomed like crazy. I was so shocked to discover that it actually does have pretty flowers! Have you ever tried collecting the seed?

  2. Hi Dawn,
    I apologize for letting your question slip through the cracks. Your sage jungle sounds wonderful. They really do have pretty flowers. And there are so many different varieties of sage. I decided to let this pot go wild, and it is now covered with blooms. I haven't ever tried collecting the seed, but I am thinking maybe I should, especially since this is such a healthy plant.


March 2013 update: My apologies for the inconvenience - I know word verification is a pain - but I've had to turn it on to help stop the ridiculous number of anonymous spam comments I've been getting every day. Thanks for your understanding.

Welcome to! Thanks so much for taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love to hear about what's going on in your own garden. I know, too, that other readers also delight in reading about your garden successes, failures, helpful tips, and lessons learned. Feel free to leave comments on older posts!

I try my best to answer all questions, but sometimes it takes me a few days to get to them. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your visits to my kitchen garden!
