Desperately trying to get the garden ready for month end* I was clearing out my old purple sprouting broccoli bed and found a clod of earth that moved:
There’s no way I’m harming something that lives on slugs, so I left that bit for later and concentrated on destroying something else’s habitat elswhere in the veg plot. Hopefully Mr Toad will find himself a new place to lurk and foray out for a profitable evening’s hunting. He certainly looks as if he hasn’t been stinting himself recently.
The veg plot is … barely under control. I’m just about managing to get the minimum needed to get everything planted out, and that only by ignoring the part where I was supposed to have planted my celeriac two months ago.
But the view from the gate of the walled garden is pretty nifty at this time of year.
* You know, all those seed packets that say ‘plant outside April – May’. How the seeds know the difference between May 31st and June 1st I have no idea, but I don’t want to risk it…
