A New Rosemary Plant

Today I got given a number of free things from friends - one of them being a Rosemary Plant! Thanks Wayne!! The other things I got free were Dahlia tubers (thanks Kirsten!)and some empty milk cartons (thanks Ian!).

The first thing I did when I got home was go to put it in a bucket of water and seasol mixture but then I realised that I didn't have a bucket big enough. After asking my neighbours I got one of those giant plastic drinks tubs

While the Rosemary was soaking I found a suitable place for it to live

I dug the soil over and added two bags of compost to help build up the height a bit, I saw so many worms in the soil - it's great to see

I cut about 1/4 to 1/2 off the bush and then planted it, watered it in well and then mulched

Today I also picked another 3 broccoli - here they are with the Rosemary

I decided that I had far too much Rosemary to use any time soon so I bundled them up and have hung them up in my garage from a bit string I tied to my roller door

I also gave a bunch to next door for the use of their tub :D
