On the farm
This week we planted out our cucumber and tomato plants in the greenhouse. Once they get their roots down, they’ll be growing fast! So we’re a bit closer to having tomatoes and cucumbers again!

Weeding has started as well, as things are growing at a rapid pace. We’ve been weeding around our gooseberry bushes to improve airflow and reduce mildew. I’ve been strimming nettles as they seem to grow everywhere here! If only our cows ate them! I’m hoping to be able to cut the nettles before they go to seed to stop them from spreading. It’s a battle every year, but this year I started early, so I think we’ll get on top of most of them.
