Barley pics May 23

This isn’t really a post, more of a visual update. I just bought a new lens for my camera so I’ll find any excuse to try it out. Weeds haven’t been an issue this year. In the beds with more compost, the barley is coming in so fast the weeds haven’t had a chance. I did a little weeding in the other beds today but there’s nothing that’s out-competing the barley. My cabbage isn’t doing too well, it’s looking rather chewed up. We have a lot of slugs here on the west coast but I can’t be too annoyed by them because they like my beer. They like it so much it kills them, poor little guys, I can relate.

Garden update May 1st 2015

Looking pretty good so far. I’ve rigged up the chicken wire like last year to prevent lodging. It worked well last year, this time I’ve added a little more support with a bamboo cross bar in the middle to keep the centre up. Check out the video:
