No longer longing for rosemary

Last year, I was hopeful that the rosemary I had sown would grow. And indeed it has

but it needs to be moved from its current location, which is where the pond is going to be.

So, now it is another plant in a pot, waiting for its new home to be ready. This wait shouldn’t be too long, though. It’s just a matter of a week till the latest bokashi bin has finished fermenting.

Sadly, I can no longer put the liquid run-off from it in the compost bin. Having discovered how much it speeds up decomposition, over the summer it was brilliant to see its effects. However, last time I looked, I felt there had been some extra help from a rat. As it’s colder at night, they are no doubt moving into more comfortable surroundings.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. Your pond is surely making you move plants around! But it will be worth it in the end. We’ve had to put mouse traps around our compost bins, but it’s better now…

    I tried for ages to grow rosemary. The seeds germinated but the small plants died over winter. Now I have some in a big pot in a greenhouse and it seems to be thriving. I have taken cuttings and one rooted but I think I may have lost it. I left it in a tray of water and it probably drowned! Oh well, next year is another chance!
