Grump, Tuesday's two identified plants are problematic.

I made two plant mistakes at the nursery on Friday. I meant to pick up summer savory but got creeping savory instead. Since summer savory is an annual, this is for the best (and leaves me wondering about where it was on my Richter's wish list.)

Then i picked up something labeled Burnet in the herb section. It's labeled with the species name of an Alaskan burnet grown for flowers not the European burnet grown as a salad plant. After much reading i think it is the salad burnet. Argh.

I've posted to Dave's Garden -- this may be only available to subscribers.

The other part is contractor hell, where the reasonable sounding owner said he'd come look yesterday but sent the problematic team lead. Who just seems sloppy and unprofessional. Anyhow, i want the manager to see the work. Did the manger talk to the team lead or the team lead tell him i still wanted to talk? No. So, i should see the manager today.

In good news, problematic team lead got the fence posts of the old fence out of the yard and it looks wonderful with out them as a distraction. We still have vinyl stuck in the ground but it's far more attractive.
