It seems that trees don’t cope so well without their other halves: cycling back to the veg plot today, I was confronted with this sad sight
The remains of the tree that had been severed by the storm earlier has gone now too. I suppose it’s not so surprising, for the tree must have been left seriously unbalanced, but it is nonetheless a shame.
Meanwhile, down at the plot, some of my veg is taking advantage of my absence and displaying expansionist tendencies.
It could be worse though: at least it’s not a courgette, but an acorn squash
In fact the whole plot is rather betraying the fact that it’s only getting a couple of hours of tending a week, not counting any weeding the rabbit might put in.
Meanwhile, I am coming to terms with the fact that any veg plot at the new house is unlikely to be much bigger than my original first six beds.
I shall have to be much more selective about what I grow …
