Today I weeded flower bed 2. Not a big job you might say, but big enough. It’s always been a bit of a problem bed (but not the worst) due to the fact that it’s infested with a very pervasive grass which has long, strong, white roots, and if only half an inch is left in the ground it will re-grow, and then you’re back to square one.

I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve tried to eradicate this grass, but it always gets the better of me. To my horror I found a new weed in there today as well. I don’t know what it is and I’m assuming it came in with the manure last Autumn but I’m going to have to keep my eye on it.

I’ve also started to put the things from the conservatory outside to harden off. I’m just itching to get them planted outside.
