All this rain has been excellent for my crops but has also led to an explosion of weeds. I have been attacking them with my hoe but it’s like that scene in the final Lord of the Rings film when the goodies are surround by orcs and can’t possibly win. The worst of the lot is bindweed, which is like a monster from a Greek myth. Slice off its head and instantly three more grow in its place. When not battling weed foe, Dan and I have been busy rehearsing for the first preview of Can You Dig It? on Sunday, July 10 at the Hen & Chickens Theatre, Highbury Corner. In fact, I am going round to Dan’s tonight. He has promised to feed me some of his new potatoes.
