One flower stem was clear and there's not much room in bag for two of those. -:- 14:56 Takes forever. Missed breakfast so had lunch, minus the greenfly. Get to the Hogweed is the order. -:- 16:23 Got some big ones at C and there are more. -:- 17:18 Found a few and big @ F. Overall there have been quite a few in outlandish places. However as some of them are quite big they were probably there last year. -:- 18:03 Yeap! May is too late to start as I have to dig and carry big plants. Must make a note to start mid April at the latest. 20th May: 15:01 Finished clearing the carr for the first run. -:- 16:06 Gathered up 5 wayward plants in the 'compost field'.
