The Surge of May

A little rain and a lot of sun and suddenly everything starts to grow, unfortunately the weeds also. This year as with previous years I have grown too much, not kept up with my weeding, and now look out into my garden and think 'where do I start?'

My greenhouse/Poly-house is having spurts of growth, from small seedlings to 'Oh my god!' it appears over night!

My Spurting Green House

My cucmbers and tomatoes are in need of training up the posts. Over in Plot No1 (not deep bed) I have sweetcorn, red cabbage, and carrots generously interspersed with just as many weeds.

Plot No 1

Whilst over in the deep beds (I am comparing effort and efficiecy this year) I have similar crops that so far are out shining the ones in the normal beds, but so also are the weeds! There are so many of them I am begining to take it personally.

Deep Beds

I have reached 3 tyres high on one potato stack, and am running out of tyres, as I have not had a puncture in the last year. My Bulgarian slalom driving technique (around the pot holes) is obviously improving.

Turkey chicks - Don't bother they need more care than new born babies and have a survival rate of, well, turkeys at christmas. 4 Chicks, 4 days of intensive care, result = no remaining chicks! This I am told by my neighbours is completely normal, one of them had 15 and lost the lot in one day once, and he has been keeping turkeys for 30 years.

I am off to wage war on the weeds. Barcelona to win 2-0!
