TITLE: Death of a Sage Plant
DATE: 6/03/2009 03:39:00 AM
I can't take it anymore! I'm tired of looking at the sage plant... tired of trying to give away gallons of leaves.... tired of trying to justify its existence in my yard. Yes, it makes a nice border for the patio... and yes, I like to use it in marinades a pastas. But enough's enough!
So, this afternoon, I whacked it. And lo and behold, I have more room for tomatoes, cucumbers or any other summer vegetable my heart desires.
Yay! What a relief!!!!

My goodness, I turned my back for a second and you committed sage-i-cide! It was such fun to visit your garden yesterday -- and you have plenty of robust sage left. The tomatoes will be happy there.

Sage advice? Yikes. I love our sage plant...maybe because I love the ease of a quick sage butter sauce over pasta. I hope there's still a little left. After all, tomatoes take their ball and go home as soon as the weather turns.

You whacked it haha! Good thing though. You needed the space. Aw, poor sage. ;)

Lydia -- Great to have you over! Hopefully next time, I can offer you tomatoes.
LC -- Sage is good, I agree, and I did save a little.
Melissa -- It had it comin'!

Oh, I forgot to thank you for your Indonesian soy recommendation. I will definitely keep my eye out for that!
And let me know how the '85 Cos is...I was pleasantly surprised. Very elegant!
