Whatever it is, it isn't what you ordered  and is going to dominate that hedgerow, I'd take it out quickly and ask your supplier for something that you ordered.

So do I - the cauli has been steamed, the cheese sauce has been made ... I'll put them together and  pop them in the oven with some lovely butcher's sausages about 5.30

I can smell that chicken from here

I'm a very seasonal cook and haven't preserved tarragon in the past - I just really look forward to it appearing in the spring for lemon and tarragon roast chicken or a fantastic tarragon flavoured new potato salad, but ............... I might just try freezing some this year

Autumn Herb Garden

It's borderline hardy in the UK and benefits from a bit of protection.  I cut mine back to about 8" in late autumn and place a large plastic flowerpot over the crown - just to keep the worst of the weather off it whilst allowing ventilation through the holes in the pot.  That seems to suit it in this garden.

Done that too Steve - organic cider vinegar (I'd been pickling onions earlier). And I've had so much pickle and chutney lately the sting's being soaked from the inside too

The thing is that to the outside world and the powers that be it looks like a business.  If the therapists are making tax returns and setting outgoings against income etc , it's going to trigger all sorts of things unless it's set up properly.

Cheers folks   I think I'll survive!  If it was anywhere else I could carry on potting, but my hand?!?!?

I've always had an aerosol of Waspeze in the house, but do you think I could find it today?  OH has gone into the city to get chrome cleaner for his bike - he's going to go to Boots and get a new can of Waspeze for the next time we need it.

Glad you've got OH home safely DD
