New photos

by Cesy,

I've just uploaded some more recent photos of my plants. The [parsley](crop) is still going strong, having seeded itself in a second spot along the box. One patch has died back a bit - I clearly need to pick it and use it more often. The [chives](crop) have also died back a bit, again probably be...
