At present, everyday I am pulling at least one soup plate like this of sycamore seedlings. They are everywhere. I have had to use tweezers to get them out of the down pipe and drain on the porch.
The neighbours have just come home with a huge chicken run. This has raised it even more if we should get hens. I am still in two minds we still have so many other things to do. Then I swing the other way and think could they help in the garden scratching about and getting rid of the millions of slugs all over and the grubs, weevils that have killed all of my lavender plants. I have no idea what they are, but I would think chickens would eat every single one of the little sods.
If we were to get some chickens, my veg raised beds would need to be somewhere else. You see, I cant make my mind up what to do. More fire wood to move and stack.
Here is a picture of the density of the moss. I think we will take everyones advice and just mow the lawn and not try to get rid of it as it will just leave the whole garden bare. You could comb it. At the very top of the picture you can just about see the tiers on the garden. there are 2. I am thinking of trying to plant them as they are nigh on vertical and extremely hard to mow.
Nothing else to report. Same as everywhere else with the Covid 19. No toilet paper, no paracetamol, no canned tomatoes and no pasta on the shelves. Due to the type of working contracts we take, I always have enough in to see us through as we never know when a contract could end suddenly and we need to eat from the stores.
I am going to take this opportunity of staying home more, to change some things in the house to make them more efficient. Silly little things that I have not got around to doing since moving in. For instance taking the shelves out of a cupboard so I can store the vacuum cleaner etc rather than it keep falling all over the place in the utility room. Something small, but it will make a big difference to every day.
I have just read that the government is going to push that all people over 70 self isolate for up to 4 months! Honest, all the older people I have spoken to, seem to think they are invincible and nothing will touch them. "Oh I have lived through the war!". And like I pointed out, "well you didnt at 80 plus and not with heart failure and breathing problems!". I am just really quite worried and stressed about it all to tell the truth. My cousin is going to go ahead and get married but do it by webcam. Have a party later. the hotel have cancelled with them as the evening do was for 600 in London. It is going to affect everyone.
Be safe everyone, stress and the not knowing what is going to happen, can and will make people do things you dont expect. Stay home as much as possible.
Be well my friends.
