It wasn't long before a pot of sweet marjoram and purple sage appeared on my porch in her honor.
Summer came along and I set the pot outside.
Fall arrived and I began cleaning up pots and tossing out things that had gone by. Just as I was about to hurl the contents of this pot into the compost pile, I spied a green shoot. Could it be...?
You live too far away, Franny Ginger, for me to watch you get bigger each week. For now, I will have to be content with tending these little sprouts, grown in your honor.
Did you ever see two happier sprouts than these?
(Alexia gets a pot of Flowering a-Leeks-ia in her honor. It's a reach, I know, but it's the best I could come up with.)
Wishing you all a flavorful harvest season!
