Okay, so I spent all day in the garden, but forgot to take some key photos. Here’s a mini-update, though.
First, I cleared away a whole heap of lemon balm.
Seriously, this was all lemon balm with a couple of violets thrown in for good measure. Look how tall! And dense! And this is just what’s left (in this corner – the stuff is all over the place):
Some of this lemon balm got composted, which, yes, is a shame. I am keeping some to dry. The rest is being given away in cheap pots that are not sitting on my front lawn:
In non-balm news, all my tomatoes are now outside. They are still small, though. It’s been a cool spring. No sign of fruits. The first two from the left on the top row (including the one that toppled over – I’ve tied it back up now) have been outside for about a month. The others are not in great shape having not been watered properly while I was in Iceland, but I think most of them will make it.
Please note TWO OTHER pots of lemon balm on the steps to the left. They are from a previous cull and are going to friends. Five pots of lemon balm, plus more composted. Gah.
More demain, including a juglone experiment update!
