Post Your Potpourri

What’s popping up in your vegetable patch? Do you have all the fixings to make a fresh salad from the garden? Our tomatoes aren’t quite turning red and juicy just yet. Supplementing the freshness of our greens and cukes with the plastic red cellophane tomatoes from the grocery store is an abysmal ending for what started off as a fantastic salad. So that’s a quick Annie bulletin on the veggie scene in our garden.

But before I run, I have a mid-week garden request. Has anyone made their own potpourri? I’m looking for a quick trick or a simple recipe as we celebrate the mid point of July to keep summer memories lasting throughout the remainder of the year. Eleanor Sinclair-Rhode gives us a hint on how to do this. "No bought potpourri is so pleasant as that made from ones own garden, for the petals of the flowers one has gathered at home hold the sunshine and memories of summer, and of past summers only the sunny days should be remembered." So please post your potpourri (any gardening comments, questions, tricks, recipes, pics or tips) to keep the summer memories and sunshine fresh in our minds. Cokie is helping in the sniff project.
