A chat with the neighbour

Another lovely day here!

Early in the morning i bumped into the neighbour and asked him what could be eating my plants. He said he’s had more slugs this year than he can ever remember (he’s been living here over 30 years) – he took me into his garden and showed me all the slug pellets he’s been slinging around and how the little bastards are still eating his stuff. So it seems i identified likeliest culprit for the pea disaster then..

Further, we agreed that the weather has been really odd this year, bouncing up and down by ten degrees. The growing season should be in full swing (it’s june!!) but things are only starting to get going.

He said that his ground is so boggy now that he is forced to build raised beds, he’s doing it on a really largescale (he runs a landscaping business and his garden is impressive), even still i felt vindicated for building my little raised beds.

We then moved on to discussing how climate change has irrevocably screwed things up and how there are too many people on the planet. What a great morning discussion!

In the midst of the doom and gloom I declined to tell him about the japanese knotweed infestation hehe.
