Propagating Herbs - Experiment winter 2020 - UPDATE Part 2

 I am finally feeling confident about my sage propagation.  A few weeks ago I pinched this tall one off and in the past week it has begun to put out side shoots.  Now I just have to transplant it into soil without killing it.

The Rosemary is more forgiving.  An easier plant for my to grow under any circumstances.  I pinched these of quite a while ago.  They branched out almost immediately but have not made much progress of recent.

Random Facebook Inspired Thought of The Day

 If you really want to know how to get rid of slugs without actually killing them, then gardening might not be for you.  Maybe chipmunks, squirrels, deer and feral cats would give you pause - but slugs?

And it wasn't because they are icky.

Secondly, today someone referred to these as Japanese Sex Beetles.

Now I will always think of them as such.

Nice chattin' with you. 

And now back to our regularly scheduled winter waiting....
