Transplanting Salad Burnet Starts

Back in mid-November (yes, I’m horribly late in posting this…) the front lawn turf replacement project underwent its first seasonal changeover—from summer to fall. Jules and Justin Dervaes worked their magic, pulling out the spent summer plants, cleaning up the perennial herbs, and transplanting cold weather starts.


  • Most of the tarragon (a mite of some sort recently attacked what was a banner crop for much of the summer)
  • Stevia
  • Marigolds
  • Basil
  • Half of the various peppers
  • Bachelor buttons

Cleaned up

  • Chives
  • Italian parsley
  • Triple-curled parsley
  • Marjoram
  • Oregano


  • Kale
  • Chard
  • Salad Burnet

Left As-Is

  • Sage
  • Geraniums
  • African Blue Basil (for now)
  • Lavenders
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Dwarf fruit trees and bushes
  • etc.

Some of the mulch was replaced or restored. Everything (still) looks so nice and tidy!

And, I still can’t get over how marvelous it is to eat from the front yard!

Coming SOON(!)—the fall to winter changes.

What’s growing in your garden these days?

    Most things are dormant right now. But I have collards, kale, spinach, cabbage and broccoli. I would not call it growing but rather they are in suspended animation. If we have a mild february they will start growing in late feb or march. At that time they will be joined by the spring crops.
