OK, here is another resolution that you may already take for granted. I will always be available to you for your questions. I hope you avail yourself of this resolution. I love to answer your comments, but especially your questions. Thoughts from Taylorsoutback gave me a good question about rue. She found a renegade rue plant and moved it in her garden. She asks:
". . .I pulled the rue out and relocated it...have heard it is sometimes not friendly with other herbs. Have you had any experience with this?"
In Louise Riotte's book, Roses Love Garlic, she says in part:
"Herb of Grace, Rue (Ruta graveolens)
This is a very bitter-tasting herb, strongly aromatic, and once important for medicinal purposes but no longer taken internally. Contact can cause a rash if you are allergic.
Plant rue with roses to foil the Japanese beetle. It is also helpful grown with fig trees. (I'm not sure how that works.) Cats detest rue, so but it on your upholstered furniture to keep them from clawing. Use against fleas in the dog's bed, and a few sprigs hung in a room will drive out flies. Rue and basil are incompatible."
Please add anything to the conversation, you might know about rue, especially other incompatible herbs. In the meantime, I will keep reading. This is how we all learn. Working on laundry and cleaning. New year, new routine! No, I did clean and do laundry last year! Hope you are having a great day wherever you may be. Talk to you later.
Each year is a fresh beginning,
A brand new undertaking...
New friends to know, new ways to go
In the life that we are making
