It’s been a fair few weeks since any work’s been done in the weeds garden due to that nasty virus doing the rounds but to help to get us in the mood here’s a pic of a couple of pumpkins.
Thanks to the good folks at Shannon’s where we got the pumpkin plant from and also a big thanks to the rodent who was caught in the darlek compost bin. It was seeing the retreating large back end of the rodent that made us decide to put all the decaying waste into a compost trench (more on that episode here) and buy said plant to plonk on top of it as pumpkins do love a bit of rich soil.
On the left is the fruit of our labours weighing in at a nice 4.8kg and to the left and from an very close associate of weeds (from her gardening club at school) a nice smaller variety at 2kg. It’s great this gardening lark isn’t it? We can’t wait to get back out there!
And while we’re here here’s a tune that’s nothing to do with Pumpkins.
Big shout to the Mungo’s Hi Fi camp again for this tune by The Hempolics – Love to sing as heard on The Rt Hon David Rodigan’s show last week and are the last few words at the end really “A bad man don’t use ketchup”? We do hope so!
The tune means a lot here as it’s based on possibly one of the first ever reggae tunes we can remember here at weeds, the great Clint Eastwood by Lee Perry. The original has a spoken intro that had us wondering at the time, from which planet does this record originate from?
And thanks again to the great upsetter.smokeyroom.net website a wonderful resource for all things Lee Perry (here) for another tune on the Clint Eastwood rhythm.
A viral remedy from Doctor Lee Perry and one to be taken three times daily. Do not exceed dosage. May induce drowsiness. Please do not drive or operate heavy machinery while under the influence of influenza. More cuts of this rhythm here.
Thanks to our good mate Fliss for letting us know of this great event coming up in Wimbledon in a couple of weeks time. It’s free if you book in advance and it looks a great night. MC Asher Senator is launching his new book “Smiley and Me” and talking over some tunes too. A good night out in a library!
