Garden Chores

This week in addition to regular wedding and watering I also hilled up some soil around the leeks to help blanch the bottoms.  All I had on hand was some extra potting soil, it probably isn't the ideal medium but it will work.

Last week my thyme was doing well and I harvested a bunch for a lemon thyme chicken salad.  I'm not sure what happened but this week it is mostly dried out and died.  I harvested what I could then pulled it out and replaced it.  I am hoping that what I was able to pick will last us long enough to allow the new plant some time to get growing.  I don't like to harvest from a new, small herb.
