OH and I have been in and out like yo-yos, getting washing in and putting it out again then getting it in again. I'm blaming Verdun
I've also popped all my tomato plants back into the mini-greenhouse 'cos we've got some heavy rain forecast tomorrow and I won't be here to look after them.
The under-gardener will be here, but he's got his painting head on this week
My potted rosemary bush (about 18" tall ad 4 yrs old) has been looking odd recently - half of it went all floppy and then began to die. The other half is fine. I was worried that there might be some vine weevil grubs in there so, with a great deal of effort I extracted it from its pot - no weevils, but it was obvious that it was a plant of two halves - and one half was dead - I got my knife out and cut the dead half off and repotted the living half in a fresh pot of fresh compost and grit. Fingers crossed!!!
I've got some cuttings on the go, but they're nothing like big enough to give me all the rosemary I need for all the rosemary potatoes and porchetta I'll be cooking this year. I might have to keep my eyes open for a bargain rosemary plant!
It can go on the list I'm making for the GC trip on Thursday - I've got a money off voucher!!!
