What a busy day, it has been non stop at work, and we have been grateful for the air conditioning today. At lunch after meeting with a good friend, I popped to the plant stall and have come back with parsley, oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage, and Fennel. I have spent the better part of this evening planting up and watering in and then I have watered up the rest of the border. Its coming along slowly, although I still need Basil, Chives, some more Oregano, Marjoram. The soil in part of the herb border is not particularly good and so I tend to stick pot fulls of stuff on there. I would also like to get hold of some Tarragon as I use that quite prolifically, so I intend to have a good look around over the next few days to see what I can locate. I have plenty of mint and sage in the herb border and bay leaves. I had seen an offer on for about 40 lavender plugs for about £10, but unfortunately when I applied they did not have any left. I have an idea of having a border down the side of the grass of a lavender hedge, which will be immediately below the clothes line. Will have to see what I can locate.
I am going to sit out the back in a little while; it is extremely muggy still, but it is quiet and it will be nice to just sit and be.
I also need to get some box files in which to store some magazine articles for the time being. So a bit more tidying up will be achieved I hope.
I am going to sort a few seeds out to plant as well I have some courgette seed and some Nasturtium seeds somewhere.
Picked the first of a few strawberries that I have homegrown this evening and they were delicious. The Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream slice is also in the freezer.
Right am off for a final potter before I go up a little later on.
Catch you soon
