Fence posts all fixed. Wires in place. And now a second strim of weeds in one month.
You could almost call me a winegrower. All I need now is a crop.
But I’m handing that over to Malcom from the next village. Hopefully he will take good care of the vines. I feel I’ve done my stint.
And the bracken is back. Just ten days after I cut the heads off all the blighters they are up again.
So if all goes well and now that I have reduced their growth to the ground, they won’t be up again this year. I think I heard that as a theory.
We shall see.
My aim is to have terraces that are just wildflowers and no nasties.
This one is just stunning. But only from a distance. Up close there are hidden brambles starting into growth. So I will have to cut it back one more time. And then I can ignore it all summer.
But it does look gorgeous from afar.
I was tempted to keep on strimming, but luckily my back said ‘enough’ and I was gasping for a cup of tea. So up I plodded.
And then spent the afternoon working closer to home. Planting out time.
Here it’s cosmos, calendula neon, tall calendula (seeds from Andrew), dahlias and nicotiana.
No, wait, if I look carefully this bed is dwarf french beans, fennel and salad. Sorry about that. I’m in a planting out frenzy.
Tomorrow it’s market day so flowers in bouquets galore. And I need to buy more potting compost – the plants are voracious in their growth right now and I have to madly keep on potting them on.
