I've dug everything out of the bigger half of the herb bed (including some tree roots which are closer to the house than I'd like them to be!)- the clumps forming a border of Chinese chives are in a large container in the shade waiting to be replanted. At the weekend OH will dig the big containers of mint out of the end of the bed so that I can rejuvenate them and replant, this time in what has proved to be the damper end of the bed. I've got some sage cuttings waiting to go in the dryer end.
I've hoed the weeds from around the broad beans - they're looking great - 8-10" tall and nice and sturdy, and I've also planted some liatris spicata in the sunny bed.
I've also picked a load of perpetual spinach and Swiss chard to go with sticky Asian-style beef ribs and noodles for our supper.
Now my back is beginning to complain (think that's because of the tree roots) and the sky is clouding over, so I'll call it a day and put my feet up in front of the Cheltenham Festival and get my knitting out.
