Happy July from Sage Hill Farms.

I certainly hope you all had a marvelous 4th and everyone is safe and back to the grind as my hubby so eloquently stated.

We awoke to a slow steady drizzle of rain this morning, so all is well on the farm...much needed and much appreciated.

The gardens are all looking good  because herbs are very drought tolerant...but even they have a need for good sustaining moisture after awhile.

This is the time to be cutting and drying and enjoying your herbs and other garden fare. We have a bounty of basils, chives, dill, fennel, lavender, marjoram, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, stevia, and thyme.

We also have in the vegetable garden- tomatoes, bell peppers, okra, cucumbers and pumpkins.

So far we have had no pest to speak of...a few Japanese Beetles have appeared, but nothing compared to last year, so hopefully the pre-cautions we took are paying off. 

Growing in raised beds also offers a great amount of protection from soil critters and weeds.

We have had a family of rabbits that keep showing up around dinner time...so far they haven't dined on my dill , which is supposed to be a favorite.

This is a picture of the giant Elephant Ears growing in the" bog" area. These were brought to me a few months ago by a friend from Woodstock, Ga......we planted and just look at them now. They were just a small bulb......thank you Anne, I love them so very much!

We have lots of plans for "Sage Hill Farms" soon to be announced-through this newsletter, so next month will be very exciting!

All of the seasonings and teas are now available and you can find them by following the link below to the Sage Hill Farms website...very easy to order and if you should need help or have questions, well, we are just a phone call or email away.

From our farm to your table-we thank you so much!

Bea and Mike Kunz
