I would like to be able to say my garden is organic, but it isn't. There's only so many times you can plant out pumpkins, only to have them eaten (snails, slugs and earwigs laughing at my organic baits and traps), before I ring my seedlings with a protective perimeter of snail-bait. This year's first round of pumpkins are 'Golden Nugget' (four seedlings thereof, in between the lemon and the apricot tree). I have never had much luck with pumpkins in general, so let's see how this early, inorganic planting goes.
In other news, just as the fruit trees start blooming their heads off, the spring storms roar through with their ferocious winds. Like every year.
