Shake, Rattle and Grow

With the rapid onset of Autumn, the poppy seeds are ready for harvesting.   I have shaken out a number of heads onto the garden to ensure we have some more poppies next year, but the rest I will save for use in the kitchen.

This years trial of weeding the veg plot apart from the poppies and nasturtiums worked well.  Lots of the weeds were suppressed by the rapid growth of the poppies and nasty urchins, but with the 'wanted' weeds being controllable.

They looked great too.
