Compost bin and herbs from the garden

My compost bin is still ticking along nicely.  I ended up giving my marjoram a reasonably hard prune (it was getting very leggy) and put the cuttings in the compost bin.  Plus I had some lovely mouldy oranges that I hope will do very well in there.

One of my jobs was cutting back the rosemary – no one else is allowed to do this because I am immensely controlling and don’t trust my husband not to cut into the woody bit.  However, all my rosemary was about to become woody if I didn’t do it soon.  So I did.  I also cut back a load of bay leaves to take back to London.

One advantage of having an absolute shitload of rosemary is I can give some to people.  I have some little envelopes so it looks as though I am some sort of gardening goddess (ha! Not really).

We’re going on holiday (skiing) next week and I’ve started packing.  I am a horrible packer – if I were more sensible, I would just get it done (a bit like homework).  Instead I faff and faff and end up with galloping anxiety that I will forget some vital thing that the kids absolutely have to have or their heads will fall off.  You get the idea.
