The 17th of June and I am making soup. For the past two weeks it has been miserably hot most of the time. Now it is downright cold and a warm, hearty supper sounds like a good idea. It is too early for much to be ready in the garden this far north, but there are plenty of herbs. I picked chives, walking onions, orange mint, creeping thyme, woolly thyme and lovage (nice since I am out of celery.) One thing nice about fall is making End of Garden soup, with the odds and ends of whatever is left in the garden. However, at this point the garden isn't even all planted.
Lovage, an herb, the leaves of which make a nice substitute for celery in soup
