Space Invaders



Should I leave them or should I not ?



Would you feel like weeding these out ?


Verbascum, poppies, campanulas, forget-me-nots, foxgloves, raspberries and strawberries are all quite at home in my Luxembourg veggie garden. They know that the lady in charge, is a sucker for pretty free plants. They self seed where they please, elbowing for space and occasionally running through other plants. I know that they can be considered weeds.

Can't bring myself to throw them into the compost heap just yet.

The string beans will have to wait.




The promise of things to come...

Is that mullein? I was just reading Friday about how useful it is in herbal medicine. I think you must harvest it, then when the "candle" is bloomed and dried up, cut it BEFORE the seeds fly off it, dip in wax and you have a torch!

Judith - I believe its Verbascum. Is it the same thing?
