Olives and rosemary focaccia

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My rosemary bush lasts every year until January despite the cold nights of December . We had temps below -10C...still kicking. That's a resilient herb.


Focaccia with garden fresh rosemary seemed like a good idea. Kalamata olives fit right in.

I need a bush like that. All looks good!

Happy smoken.

Had a few cold days last week (down to -18c at night). This morning -22C (-8F). The rosemary plant couldn't care less.



Needles are soft...not a lot of water in those. More flagrant than ever.

Weather will get milder in the weekend...I wonder if I should water it.

nice looking loaf.....I'd think the melting snow should be enough water, no?......Willie

Might not get that warm (to melt the snow). And other than lack of water I can't find an explanation for the plant dying every year halfway thru the winter, weeks or a month after the worst cold blast.

You would have liked the time I visited a friend in CA, and helped him trim a nuisance rosemary bush from chest height down to waist height.

 

He gave me a bagful to take home, and I put it in my suitcase. When I got home there was a friendly note from the TSA saying they had checked inside the suitcase - must have tripped the sniffer dog.

Dave I use to have to do the same thing, take some burlap and a small trash can. wrap it then cover with the can it will survive.

I have seen them come back even when they were brown

The rosemary plant doesn't look to hot. Still getting needles for my focaccias. This time is olives and roasted pepper paste

Most species of Rosemary are considered tender perennials. Add a little caramelized onion and sea salt to that focaccia and I'm in.
