 I'm always so optimistic at the beginning of the season 
when I plant

that wonderfully fragrant dill

and spicy parsley to flavor our dishes

I would love to see dozens  of these lining the shelves in my cellar

oh well

I can buy pickles at the grocery store

I know what you mean!
I have great gardening plans and then it doesn't work out.
I guess it's the planning and the journey, right?

I try and try to grow vegetables in pots but I only have got parsley and one brecol, when I buy a basil pot I only can use the leaves that were in the pot when I bought it. And then it dry up.

lindos seus temperos, e as conservas deliciosas. Eu faço conserva com a casca do pepino, fica uma delicia para comer com pão e manteiga.
Bjos e tenha uma ótima semana.
