This was going to contain much more whining about our landlords

by Skud,

... but I'm tired of it, so I won't. I just wish our mutual understanding of the term "quiet enjoyment" involved fewer inspections and more autonomy in the garden. Anyway. The other day I picked up some herbs from the CERES nursery, and on Monday I planted them along the front fence: ![he...
