After strimming I set to work on finding some more cutworms. Yes, I'm slightly addicted. It's quite satisfying rummaging through the soil to look for the pest that eats your seedlings. I remember weeding the carrot rows at Shillingford Organic Farm and collecting slugs along the lettuce rows, so it's definitely what the organic dudes do. I remember asking, "Do I leave the worms?" I've come on a little, if I do say so myself.
These daily updates are really a diary for me and my future vegetable growing so I can look back and see what I was doing in years before. One problem with it though, is that it's very difficult to see any change happening when I'm looking at my stuff every day! Some stuff like my potatoes do seem to be growing very fast - the second earlies are now properly coming through (only one row though which is weird) so I earthed them up a little. Lettuce is doing the usual really, just sitting there sending out a milimetre of growth every day and my tomatoes are pretty much on holiday although a couple of flowers are starting to open. The true carrot leaves are pretty though but it's a shame my first row has so many gaps!
I think out of all the things on my plot, the weeds are growing the best of all.
