Flavin FINALLY resigns. I can’t wait to read Shane Ross on Sunday.
In other news I have now finished Series 1 of BSG. Smashing stuff. I could’ve gone straight into Series 2 but its such a pleasure, why binge? I will extend the thrill……
Also, who would’ve thought we’d be so glad to see some rain? The weather has been RIDICULOUSLY cold. That north-east wind has had me fretting for the survival of my seedlings. So far though, I should report that the transplanted lettuces appear perky. I might try the spinach at the weekend.
The nettle/thistle situation is creating a severe crisis of conscience. Surely one HAS to spray? IF we defeat them then we restore the other plants in a couple of years when we are nettle free? Betty says the trick is targetting the spray. Close to the ground, only in affected areas and when there is no wind. I can’t help admiring the ditch that she spent at least 5 years spraying and finally defeated the wretched weeds. Now there is lovely long grass and the buttercups are bountiful. I think I’ll ring some expert. I refuse to believe we are required to indulge thistles in the name of the environment. Advice welcome.
