We must have gone wrong somewhere with the herbs; either we planted them too late or the soil just wasn’t right. Now, in early August, we finally have basil plants that are about five inches tall… we’ve been getting basil in our food share for more than a month now!

The mint is also about 5” tall, but not big enough to use. Cilantro? Most of it didn’t germinate, and what did flowered when it was very small. The flat leaf parsley is finally starting to look good. We’ll see how much growing these herbs can do in the next six weeks! Fortunately, a lot of them are in pots so maybe we can bring them in when it starts to get cold.
