Salsa Verde, Herbs and Bricks

I bought tomatillos at Publix, did some research on how to grow them, looked at a bunch of recipes, and today I made Salsa Verde!  It was very easy to make and it was delicious!  

This is the recipe I used, which I found on Pinterest:

I will definitely make this again.  I even remembered to save some seeds before I roasted them so I can (hopefully) grow some tomatillos.  I thought I had purchased seeds but what I had bought were cubanelle sweet pepper.  Oops!  Not quite the same.

What I didn't do today was finish adding more top soil and peat moss to the second hugelkultur garden project.  I wrecked my back last weekend building it and need to give it another week's rest before I heave heavy bags of dirt around.  I did manage to vacuum/mulch some leaves this morning before my back complained and will try to do a little more tomorrow.  I mulched a few more naked areas so I feel like I made some progress.

Home Depot had pots of herbs marked down to $1.99 each so I bought more Basil, Cilantro and Rosemary, and also got some Thyme and Pineapple Sage which I don't have in the garden yet.  They had a limited selection, but at least what was there was very healthy.  I also couldn't resist the seed packets and bought some flower seeds - Zinnia, Black Eyed Susan and Coleus.    

And, I got 20 more bricks for the border/edge project.

As usual, lots on the to do list!
