Devastation in the Veggie Garden
The gales which swept across Scotland yesterday with gusts of up to 100mph resulted in a neighbour’s extremely large leylandii tree landing bang across our veggie garden. Bob was very sorry and apologised profusely – you can see how it looked this morning…
The main part of the tree fell on the potato area which will recover.
But some landed on the brassicas and they are unlikely to stand up again. Some of the broad beans got damaged too. We’ll have to sow more cabbages and possibly visit a local nursery that grows their veg. seedlings in an organic way.
The remains of the tree, looking very sad and sorry for itself. Will have to come down completely.
Bulba has already been working away and removed some of the smaller branches and will continue to do so. He has to watch where he puts his feet so as not to step on any of the plants!
