Not bad for weeds from the potager.
Yes I have finally attended to the weeds. I spent the afternoon pulling out unwanted coriander plants, poppy plants, bindweed, you name it, it went onto the growing compost heap.
The swiss chard came from a meticulous weeding of the brassica beds. I cut back any plant that would rob the brassicas of light and food. So back I came at 7pm with an armful of chard.
It looks neat and tidy now.
And a bit bare. I decided to plant out five tomato plants in the far right top bed. It joins the aubergines which are just starting to fruit.
I need to sow more parsnips as they didn’t take early this year. And possibly more carrots. But I’m wary now that I know the mole rat is sharing my garden. Carrot roots are just about the rat’s favourite snack.
It was drizzly and rather cool today. Perfect weather for weeding. But I wasn’t able to harvest my lavender (a major chore) as it was just too damp. Hopefully tomorrow I can get out the secateurs tomorrow first thing. And mow the first terrace. And strim. I foresee a busy day ahead.
One thing I do every day is admire the lawn. What a lazarus. Brown and parched a week ago, now bouncing back.
