Allotmenticity - Wednesday 20th June



Just a quick addendum to yesterdays blog. As it was such a nice day I thought I'd nip down and grab a photo of the new nets kindly provided by Nursevon. As you can see they look very tasty. I also wanted to update the view from Compost Corner over the plot. It's amazing the difference from the first photo taken 4 months ago!
And finally I've managed to capture the Kestrel who pays his daily visit. He gave me half a chance by hovering nearby.
I used some of the Nettle Stew to spray on the Brassicas. PHEW!!! That stuff stinks, but hopefully all the pests will think the same and stay away.
OK that's all for now folks, off for a snifter.
The Captain.

Hi Captain. The nettle spray - does it take care of cabbage worms?
I'm about to use tomato leaf tea, just because it's worked on other pests.

Hi, it's me again! I was wondering if you make this stew yourself? If so, can you share the recipe? And yes, it's the caterpillars I want to banish ;)Thanks.

Your garden is fantastic! I love the curtains on your shed.
