Weeding

It's mostly weeding, this time of year. Sowing direct has not been a great success, but it's not a complete wash out, either. Hoed between the rows, and then got down into the rows of coriander, sage, neeps and beetroot to thin and weed. It's extremely satisfying to stand back from that and see a row of well spaced, weed-free plants. And getting down and doing real fingertip weeding means you're getting to know your crop, and all the bloody weeds that invest them.
