Hot, Hot, Hot!A vacation day for me!
To try to save my lettuce from the extreme heat, hubby rigged up this lattice shade cover.
You can see them in their neat spacings before they were pushed down and covered with soil.
I also bought some lemon grass but haven't planted it yet. My friend looked at it and mentioned that it looked like a weed. And it did. The herb guy said to plant it in a pot so I could bring it inside for the winter.
I have never used lemon grass, but I am intrigued by it. It is widely used in Thai food and also Indian cuisine. It has the lemony flavor without the bite of a lemon.Some have said it has a hint of ginger. So I am going to give it a try. I need to get some potting soil and pot it up and see how it goes.
This evening we had a thunderstorm, so it will be put to use immediately!
The garden should look a little bit perked up tomorrow. It will be fun to see how much rain we got!
I hope the rain brings in cooler weather tomorrow. My friend and I are touring Rutger's Gardens!
Happy Birthday Sheila!
