Lovage or Leave it

I watched my lovage plant whither and disappear last winter, giving it the occasional watering in hopes it would reemerge. It didn't. Kind of a difficult plant to come by, too. So strongly celery-ish, good with smoked fish. Cuts the oiliness. Then L wanted a pot for some purloined mint, so I gave that one to her. Lo and behold, as she was digging around, she discovered a weird bunch of roots, still viable. The lovage! As you can see, the nodes are growing. I'll repot soon enough.

Slightly Late for Mother's Day . . .

It's a short; you might like to read The New Yorker article about it after you've seen it.
