Down on The Farm...



Posting has been sparse recently, because there's so much to do down on 'The Patch', and also round the village, where a newly retired Scrobs is required to do this and that!

So here's a pic of 'The Patch', to show that at least the spades, forks and tillers have been doing their jobs, aided and abetted by Mrs Scroblene, who is a dab hand at couch-removal, and also catching a chum's stray chickens (not ours), and inserting them back through the hole in their netting...

Life is just too good...

I like pulling up couch, especially in good friable soil where you can pull up yards of the stuff in one go.

I reckon I could grow the grass between it no problem...

The couch in a bed just off the left-hand of the pic was the worst we've ever seen, Mr H!

Great handfuls were all wound up in the blackcurrants, ans we spent a couple of hours, just hoiking it all out!

I never did dig that bed as we wanted to keep the old bushes, which are astounding in their crop each year - now they can see the sky!

T'will be, Thud!

I just wandered down today, to talk to the spuds,and found two were already up and peering over their mound...

That grass paths are because we really can't consume enough from a whole eight rod patch, so we just make a lot of single beds, all around 8' x 4', and grow what we like in rotation!

This year, we'll have 105 tomato plants, some at home and the rest down there...
