Flowering Garden Sage

I’ve got an enormous patch of sage plants living in one corner of my community garden plot that have just begun to flower. There are actually four varieties living in that corner but only the common garden sage (Salvia officinalis) is in bloom. It looks and smells amazing! The community garden plot isn’t big and while space in the sun is prized, giving over that spot to sage has been worth it. Plus we’ve got more sage than we know what to do with.

  1. I love sage. It will look really cool when they are all blooming. Make some herb vinegar with it, or a big ole pot of green beans. The fresh sage is great with beans. You can freeze it too:)
