It has been so long since I posted to the blog - thought I'd do a quick update - weeds weeds and more weeds! they are everywhere, and although I haven't been able to go to the plot recently, I have been sending the undergardener armed with a watering can - and he has done an admirable job of watering - however lateral thinking is not his strong point and the idea of pulling out weeds whilst he was walking past them obviously didn't occur. To say that I was shocked when I visited the plot today is an understatement!
I Have not been to the plot for the past few weeks as we had a new member of our family arrive - He's black, has four legs and is extremely cute!
We have now taken him to the plot - or rather the under gardener has when he went watering but not weeding, and he has been very good, not running off, staying near, and not eating many of the plants which he rather partial to - perhaps I can train him to weed!
This is a picture of myself - the Head Gardener with dog and produce which we picked this morning.
Onions - Unwins earlies (pick and use straight away - no good for storing) Broad beans, the first potatoes we have dug and a cucumber. - Guess what we're having for dinner tonight!
