September at Big Sky Herbs

Bringing in the leaves…

Awe..Tulsi is so fragrant!

September in Missoula, Montana is a transitional time in the garden. We can have high temperatures in the 90’s and drop to lows of 40’s. Our average first frost date is Sept. 21. With that in mind, we harvest like crazy knowing it could be the last time for many of our herb leaves. We’re also planning for fall transplanting and installing more permaculture…namely leaves and other organic matter. As the summer comes to a close, over 130 different herb plants will be getting a final ‘haircut’ to be fashioned into dried culinary arrangements and wellness teas. With Covid measures in place we’re going to kick off the month with a Volunteer Learning Day on Labor Day 9/7. We’ll put all the details in our News and events blog and on the Volunteer/Intern page.

Spread the herb,

Lori Elliott

PS: We post pretty much every week on our News and Events page, Facebook, or Instagram since we’re always doing something  you might want to be involved with…join us from 6 feet out in the garden!
