I lost my thyme plant in a raised bed of lovely rich soil that whilst draining it would hold moisture, my next plant is going into our gravel driveway alongside an oregano that is very happy and right now showing new growth. My best ever rosemary is right at the edge of a steep bank, rosemary does better out of pots though I figure it just keeps getting bigger so doing cuttings every year is the way to go.

Dear Richard,
if I am adding garlic to roast spuds then I add it when I turn them about 1/2 way through cooking. I usually mix it with a little oil before applying and crush the spuds slightly to allow the flavour to penetrate.

Thanks Sally, are you crushing it ?

I did roasties again yesterday, same happened. Garlic slices got cremated though they did impart a garlic flavour. I can't have roasties without garlic so I did try crushing garlic into oil and letting it infuse then brushing the oil on. That works to some extent.

All this recent nonesense about not roasting our spuds and toast isn't recent, why do they publish this stuff ? It was in the sixties I became vegetarian and devoured any print-media about nutrition, mostly the source was American. No BBQ food, no crispy roasted anything no toast, don't eat bread and weigh your evacuations daily. No kidding. No boozing of course, spoil-sports. I even read the bible where eating vegetables proved to be healthier than the wine and rich foods of rulers and kings. That did it for me for forty years.

No boozing ? What about the drugs I've been spoon fed over the years ? It's taken six months to rid myself of an opiate I've taken for ten years and I'm told I shouldn't reduce. That opiate whilst initially helpful caused more harm than good, thousands of people suffering just to keep the pharmaceutical coffers full, then there's the other stuff I need to dump but I won't go on.

Sorry, rant-over.
