Fruit & Veg

Nick's Vegetable Plot


Despite the rigours of my various commitments this year (see M. Swainston, passim) I've had some time to work on the vegetable patch.

There have been a few disasters (notably the cauliflowers), but we did harvest our first spring onions, which gave me a disproportionate amount of pleasure in ratio to the actual amount of crop! The patch is surrounded by a fence, to keep the rabbits and the chickens out - anyone who has tried to turn over soil whilst 4 curious chickens scratch around for worms and generally get in the way, will appreciate the necessity...

Is that the new way to get new labour party members, grow a bunch of cauliflowers planted by a chicken (or should that be a cock).
