The Veg Beds in May

So in common with our fellow growers, our battle against weeds and pests goes on. Which reminds me of an unattributed quote we now appreciate all the more –

“When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed, and not a valuable plant, is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it’s a valuable plant!”

But at least now we are more hopeful that we will harvest at least some produce!
