Warning Cats Black fly And Slugs Can Seriously Damage A Friday Morning
When I first started my blog I said I would show the good the bad and the ugly. I have spared you the bad and the ugly well mostly… But this week I have plenty of bad and ugly for you. The wet windy conditions this summer has taken it’s toll on my garden and it has been ravaged by bind weed black fly and slugs. Pretty flowers are very few and far between. The veg plots have blank spaces where seeds have failed to come through germination has been halted by the constant deluge of rain for weeks on end then baking hot sun for a couple of days followed by cold winds nothing seems to be doing very well at the moment. The other afternoon I was in the kitchen at 4pm I had to put the light on because it was so dark and dismal it was more like November than July! Last night a neighbours cat got into the greenhouse and had made itself nice and comfortable under the bench Steve did not see it when he went down closed up for the night. Well as you can imagine it was not to happy when it found it could not get out and wrecked my tomatoes and manage to chew half a cucumber. My spirits are like my tomatoes on the floor.
I have had very little time to spare in the garden this year which does not help but my enthusiasm is defiantly dwindling at the moment. However the forecast for the next week is looking better we should be back to some summer weather. Mother-in-law is on the mend so fingers crossed I will have more time soon although I think I may have to call it a day for the flowers this year :( ……………or maybe not!
Any way brace yourself here it is! Black fly slug damage and smashed tomatoes!
