Do you remember the new herb bed? Back in June it looked like this:
but now each plant has run its course for the first season. Some have flourished and disappeared (Fenugreek, Chervil and Summer Savory) Others have established themselves (Rosemary Sage and Thyme) but the cuckoo in the nest has been the Sorrel! I've sown some more at the plot and I am going to dig this patch up. Anyone know any good sorrel recipes?
All in all I am delighted with the new "parterre". As you can see from the picture below the loose leaf lettuces are turning into pagodas while the wild rocket is going wild. In the background my outdoor tomato experiment has returned a negative response. Not one fruit. Not to be repeated.
..but there's plenty more for the green tomato chutney!
