So I have been promising to do more "how to" type posts and this is one them; my "how I weed".
I am not saying that you have to do it this way, but I find this to be a therapeutic but fast method which allows me to get my hands dirty (part of the pleasure of growing your own) and feel close to the soil, while removing a very large proportion of weeds, including very tiny ones before they start to take over.
So, without any more preamble, follows the pictures:
So there you have it.
How I Weed.
Aren't you glad you read that blog.
On other matters, my potatoes are up to about 25 plants in the main bed, the tomatoes are going NUTS (I am taking pictures every day for a week and will post a set of those pictures up a week today. The chillis had a day in the greenhouse (on the day the sun put it's hat on) and are looking ok. Still no sign of carrots, parsnips, cabbage or spring onions, and I've started some pots with Sweetcorn in (and started digging the bed for them; hard work with MASSIVE tree roots across the plot :(..)
So, onwards and upwards :) thanks for reading, please follow and comment if you want to.
