Well it has definitely been many moons since my last post. This past summer Austin experienced record high temperatures and severe drought. Only one little tomato made it through unscathed, the rest of my garden quickly shriveled under the hot Texas sun. Soon I am planning on investing in a nice rain barrel to collect what little rain falls from the sky, so I can keep my water bill low and my garden green. More to come on this subject!

Half of my herbs have really come to life! They are mature and strong enough now to use for cooking, without fear of them dying easily. Yesterday I made a refreshing pitcher of iced tea with lemon, honey, and of course, mint from my herb garden. It was the perfect drink to sip while sitting outside enjoying the beautiful day with friends.
