Plantings

My seeds, onion sets and rosemary bush have arrived!

Before it got dark this evening, I got a row of peas and a row of beetroot planted in the northernmost raised bed, and made a sort of cage of twigs to protect them from cats. And I also planted half a row of lettuce and half a row of basil in the greenhouse.  

The rosemary is sitting in its pot by the fig tree at the moment, waiting for me to dig a hole for it.   I've put in some purple sage where the old rosemary bush was, and will pop the rosemary in at the spot near where a very very old sage bush is currently limping along on its last legs.

I don't think any of my fennels or thymes have made it through the winter, alas.  But the wild garlic is going like nobody's business.  I recommend wild garlic leaves with pasta: it's delicious!

It's been a 'get on and do things' sort of day somehow. Maybe it's the sunshine, but isn't it lovely to have so much light in the evenings now.

You sure you're not preparing for the Cornish version of The Wicker Man, there?

That's what I said when she showed it to me.
