The Sage Corner

This is the patch of several sage varieties that sits in the north east corner of my community garden plot. It’s quite a big patch — I grow more sage than I can possibly use within a year and always end up begging people to take some. In a small space I can’t grow the legions of squash that many gardeners complain about. In all honesty we could really do with more. Sage, on the other hand, is my squash. I love the herb for cooking and it looks fantastic in the garden, but really, there’s just so much of it!

  1. Gayla, that’s too funny!

    For me, tomatoes and thyme are my squash. I’m planning close to tomato plants for my roof this summer, and as many different varieties of thyme as I can find. It’s only me and my other half, so I also invariably need to find people to give things away to.
