The Herbs

As keen-eyed readers will have noticed my blog title now contains the word 'gardening'. I say gardening but at the moment it's growing things in tubs and pots. When my landlord finally gets the back garden sorted each of the four flats will have a quarter plot to grow vegetables on. Plus the usual grassed areas of course.

One thing I would like to do is host a games day here this year. I have plenty of room for games indoors and outdoors: large living room, large covered patio area and of course the garden. There's a first rate chippy nearby and I will bake one of my Dorset Apple Cakes. Clotted cream and tea will accompany the baked treat.

Anyway here's some pictures from my burgeoning herb garden to keep you amused:

Spearmint & Orange Mint

Common Thyme & Golden Thyme

Updates as they happen.


  1. Your blog covers an eclectic range of subjects really :)

    I just have different blogs (although 90% of the activity is on the wargames one, so i don't know why I bother really).

    1. Cheers Alan :-)

      I thought it was easier to keep all my ramblings in one place. I'd only forget I had other blogs anyway: senior moments, that sort of thing ;-)

  2. Great to add gardening to your blog .It is a terrific hobby and I always enjoy reading about the horticultural efforts of others.

    1. Thank you for your support and kind words, old bean ;-)
