Testing the waters and, yes, I can see you.

Okay, this time I took pictures, loaded them to the computer and got them in a file.
 I had a good subject in the garden hanging out on the Lemon Balm.
 Lemon Balm being in the mint family will grow anywhere and anytime.
We are never with out this plant that I first planted about 30 years ago.

Need some?



The small kiln is loaded and we are taking a break before we brick up the door.
 We wanted to fire tomorrow, but the weather is still calling for thunder storms most of the day.
 We are going to bump up to firing on Thursday instead.

I am going back to poking the computer, more glazing tomorrow as we head into loading the big kiln. It's a bit more than one day of glazing.

A lot of fun happening here come on and we will let you help.
 Cheers, M

I had it at my last place and planted some here too, I love lemon balm.

I am barely starting some lemon balm in my little herb garden this year. So many of my herbs haven't done well in the dry heat here, so I am now hopeful since you said it will grow anywhere. :)

Michèle Hastings said...

I am totally clueless about lemon balm. What do you use it for?

cookingwithgas said...

MH- come and dig some up- it has a lemon flavor and can be used for cooking or teas.

Julia- I bet it will grow anywhere. Herbs don't need good soil and most will grow anywhere- but potted works well too.
Hey Linda!

A little blue lizard comes to visit me in my studio. She's always there when my hands are covered in clay so taking a picture is impossible but one day...
The lemon balm looks so lush I'm encouraged to plant some.

It's fun to see your southern garden and know that our plants will be catching up in a few weeks!

I have serious kiln envy- yours is so pretty and clean and neat and the bricks are all in one piece!!!

:)

cookingwithgas said...

Lori- if you plant this it will be yours for many years to come!

Mark puts art in his kiln building, but don't look at his side of the bedroom....

Laurie said...

I love the lizard, and your comment re: Mark's side of the bedroom. I know whereof you speak (in OUR bedroom that is :o) Well, they do have their redeeming qualities, thank goodness!

cookingwithgas said...

yes they do Laurie--I am keeping mine!

I swap you for some peppermint.

cookingwithgas said...

peppermint---tempting Mrs G, very tempting. But I would gladly give you loads of lemon balm.
