Big shout to Stevie B, Fenny and Jim for playing this tune on Saturday’s On The Wire and what a lovely bit of reggae it is, from San Diego’s Tribal Seeds (more on their soundcloud here).
Another great tune this time straight out of Yorkshire on the mighty Scotch Bonnet Records from Danny T, Tradesman featuring Mark Iration called Up Deh. Tune!
Also a big shout to all at the Thompson & Morgan gardening blog for including one of our tips in their latest post “Expert gardening tips for beginners” which contains some great gems of info for beginners and non-beginners alike. Do have a look at the post here.
So the slugs have devoured your seedlings, your brussels have clubroot and there’s blight on your Mountain Magic. Never mind, get into some loose clothing, lie down and drop out to this seven minutes of blissed electronica from Pariah. Forget about the garden for now, those pests can wait! #trippinginthegreenhouse
A few photos of the state of play in the Weeds garden at the moment. There’s fun and frolics in the pond with the goldfish and this year’s batch of tadpoles and it’s not looking too murky in there at the moment. There’s no sign of that thieving Lewisham heron either thanks to the folks at Shannon’s for telling us to put pea netting over the top of the pond (with a few escape routes dotted about for the local mini-wildlife).
The poppies are doing their thing too. Any seed heads that form we dry out and distribute around the garden so they’ll come back next summer.
The vegetable bed at the bottom of the garden has moved on since last month. The spuds are on their way, the alderman peas are starting to grow and we’re finally seeing the runner beans germinate. And about time too!
Two for a Monday, the first Utopia – Sunshine Life (Beatconductor Dub) starts on a funky tip with a heavy synth bassline and a “Now that we found love” type vibe going on then going into a nice 70’s reggae thing. One to play when the sun’s out!
And the second, a great mix from Phil “The Ambient Toothgrinder” Mison and Jose Padilla in tandem from many years ago in sunny Southend to stick on and blast out of the back doors in the evening when you’re filling up those beer traps for the slugs to wander into.
