vegie garden blues

My tomatoes have spots.

Bloody hell! They have only been in for a week or so and they are already blighted.
Bloody gardening. I just want to stick the plants in the ground and watch them grow and produce an abundance of tasty organic produce. It seems that the kitchen garden is a little more complex than that.

What happened to Neil the hippies simplistic description on the Young Ones
" We sow the seed, nature grows the seed and we eat the seed."

It sure sounds easy.

The good news is we went to the kb girl's birthday disco last night and had a blast. J and I tore up the dancefloor. It was grouse.

yes, I agree with Shannon, it's that adjustment thing, getting used to the new rich soil of the recently de-weeded, with beautiful ALREADY THERE concrete edges and everything. . .just ignore them and they'll sort themselves out. .

and carp juice. . .amazing stuff, they sure do love their carp juice.
