Another Fine Day.

Spent some time on the plot today and achieved this:

Sharpened 2 x hoes then hoed between the onions and strawberry plants.
Turned over the salad bed and mixed in some growmore pellets for good measure.
Cleaned out the tool bunker that I have been meaning to do that since last year.
Planted some sun flowers in pots for now.
Planted 8 x Kohlrabi.

This evening, Louise picked some rhubarb to make rhubarb crumble and with the leaves I ripped them up, placed them into a large bucket, filled it with water and then placed a brick on the leaves to weigh them down.
Apparently, after the leaves have broken down and fermented, the water can be used as a pesticide against slugs. Try anything I will.
