Potato Beasts - 30 May 2011

I don't like using pesticides, or herbicides, because lets face it the word 'cide' basicaly translates as 'poison' and as I am eating quite a lot of what I grow, I will only be poisoning myself. Other than that though, if I could invent a mini-nuclear bomb to wipe out the beasts that are devouring my potatoes, without leaving any toxic residue my finger would be on the button - The little bastards!

Potato Beasts

These little gits are going to get it!

So out with the sprayer and hopefully what I have been told will get rid of them without causing too much damdege to me, some Bulgarian magic blue powder mixed with water. As Kilgore said in Apolcalypse Now: I love the smell of Napalm in the morning.

I have also planted out french beans, watermelon, honeydew melons, and some really weird looking gourds, that although you cannot eat do grow into some great shapes and make my neighbours roll there eyes at me.
