|Checking the chickens..|
With the new tractor in place we were wondering just how to tackle the veg garden this year, but hubs insisted that we at least try to get some sort of crop out of it, or else we would proverbially die trying..lol. Last year was not so great due to an mole infestation, and of course this demotivated us from doing much at all, but we did realise that no matter what the garden would need a major overhaul this year. And so we tried tentatively with some new things and some old things too.

|Rosemary gone wild. :-)|
And things were still not going according to plan.. the chickens weren't really happy (due to the fact that there were two roosters in the tractor), and the moles were still here disrupting the soil, and then we had what seemed like the whole Haarlem population of slugs and snails.. so we lost out lettuce crop to them, and everything else was just blegh to look at.. and seemed like it was going nowhere.. the only thing we managed to enjoy was the radish.. but then again you don't need a degree in gardening to be able to grow them.. lol.
Everything really needed a rethink, we just didn't know where to start...
