|Move over Mr. Darcy!|
Weeding was the first job of the day so lucky for us an additional bod (above) came along for the ride and ended up helping to weed half the plot! And then, god forbid that we forget, dig a hole for his Mum so she could get rid of her vegetable peelings which had been fermenting on the home balcony for the last 2 years! Yup 2 years!
Checking over our babies
|Another hot pepper|
An expected outbreak of white fly all over our toms, so the potion was retrieved from various parts of the farm (our fat friend Attilla took an interest in the plastic bottles); all toms received a shower of magic nicotine potion!
Weeding completed, ladybirds checked out and a butterfly observed we had a rest in the shade of our faithful tree before taking one more look over our project.
and then our first little harvest,,,
|A few young lettuce leaves and basil for Sunday salad!|
Tip for the week:
All hands on deck when it comes to weeding!
Note to selves:
Get more plastic sheeting!
