Summer is most definitely here, and by that, I mean heavy rain. The dry spell previously was a bit too much for some plants. I guess this means a few changes for next year.
As it stands, the veg are progressing slowly. And as I said with a few trouble-makers.
Bring on the Beer!
I always as many people will know have situations with slugs. I’ve tried a few tricks in the past but this year has been the best success with… beer! The only problem is that to get to the beer the slugs do in fact have to travel past the plants, which might seem too tempting.
A New Cool Idea!
I have used a new technique I haven’t applied before in layering and protecting the base of corn plants. I saw it somewhere that they prefer cooler roots with hotter tops.
A couple of positive notes
So as things go it’s quite productive with the greens already feeding us. The courgette explosion is just a few weeks away.
