Phew! Need a sit down and
I've dug out half of the big herb bed; the elderly sage bush is no more (I've got cuttings from last year to replace it) and the border of Chinese chives are in a big container in the shade waiting to be replanted. The fennel has gone too - I plan to grow a 'hedge' of bronze fennel at the far end of the veg plot to screen our sunny sitting spot which doesn't have a name yet ... but it will.
I've removed a ton of dandelion seedlings and strings of twitch and, a bit alarmingly some tree roots - they're from the remaining ash tree and are a bit closer to the house than I would like I shall try not to worry about them for the time being.
The mints (spear mint and apple mint) are in two big pots sunk into the ground, only an inch or so of the rims protrude - OH has issued instructions that I must not try to dig them up - hopefully he'll do them within the next few days - as the mint needs rejuvenating and putting back into containers and sinking into the ground again - this time they're going nearer to the edge of the herb bed which gets some run off from the terrace and is always damp.
What have you lot been up to?
