Sage plant wilting
I've been celebrating merrily my triumph with the zucchini and baby watermelons, but now this: my sage plant appears to be croaking. Good grief. Can't everything just stay happy and flourish all at once? (No. I realize the answer to that is, unfortunately, no. The garden constantly throws me curve balls. And that's what keeps it interesting, although sometimes -- like now -- it's darn frustrating!)
In the spring, this plant exploded with soft, fragrant new leaves. I'm now regretting that I didn't cut any of them to dry. I wanted to set some aside for our Thanksgiving dinner. But since the plant grew so effortlessly and rapidly, I didn't feel any urgency to harvest the leaves. I thought they would be here. All. Summer. Long.
So what's going on with it? The leaves are wilting and curling and turning crispy brown. I think the plant had plenty of water. Could it be too much water causing this? Is it going the way of our rosemary?
