In My San Diego Garden and Kitchen 9-26-16

Once again small harvests from my garden. The rosemary sprigs were placed in a lengthwise slit of a pork tenderloin before roasting. The lavender is still in a small vase until I decide later today if I’ll make more lavender syrup or lavender-infused sugar.

There are now four Corten steel raised beds waiting to be planted. Each is 4 feet x 8 feet and 22 inches tall. I would have started planting over the weekend but temperatures were to be near 90 degrees at the coast. Today the prediction is 97 degrees and humidity less than ten percent. 

Check back later this week to read the story of the Corten steel beds and how we filled them. Think Hugelkultur, the lasagna method and lots of compost.

Until then, see what other garden bloggers are harvesting at Harvest Monday, hosted by Our Happy Acres.
