I have an abundance of herbs at the moment and discovered this cool idea for Herb Rings! I’m not going to lie, I’ve become slightly addicted to making these cute little wreaths - it’s pretty fun 😂 Fun and practical = winner. All you do is pick the herbs you want, plait/braid them together and join the ends by either tying the stems or tying with some twine. You can then let them dry or freeze them and add them to soup or basically any dish you need them for. Such a great way to use excess herbs! 🌿
Tularosa market melon from Victory Seeds are among the things we've trialed this year to determine whether it's a good fit for us to grow for sale. The first set of fruits was taken down by pickle worms, but the plants fruited for us again. We covered the baby melons with paper bags until the threat of pickleworms was gone. These are a winner- delicious. To tell ripeness, the melon will turn a pale yellow and have a delicious aroma.
Sanguisorba officinalis (blodtopp) along the driveway. Our plot is 1970m2 and we bought it 2001 when it was nothing but dense forest. 2004 we moved into our newly built house and 2006 we started on the garden.
Raindrops on the leaves of a Ladys Mantle (alchemilla). Unseasonable cool and wet in Yorkshire today.
