I picked too much Rosemary last week when I nipped out in the rain to grab some herbs from the tin bath. Rather than using it all and risk spoiling the dish I was making, I snipped off the amount I needed and stood the rest in a pot on the kitchen windowsill.
It got a water whenever I was watering the other herbs, but I didn't have a recipe that I needed it in until the other day when I was making some Mediterranean Veggies. On pulling the sprig out of the pot this is what I was greeted with ...... lovely healthy roots. So I popped it back into the water and went and cut another sprig from outside to use in my cooking.
A plant for free, maybe I'll do a few more and try and quell my urge to get seriously planting.
This was how it looked when I first sowed the seeds, now it is a mass of green.
I have cobbled together a makeshift 'greenhouse' to start some salad crops off in since the permission for the poly and net tunnels is taking so long. Fingers crossed but we should hear next week and it's looking favourable :-) The seedlings in my 'greenhouse' are doing surprisingly well, because I was using some of my oldest seeds I was very generous with the sprinkling of them and don't you know it virtually all of them came up, so at least there are some edible crops on the way soon.
Back to my roots ..... at last.
