PAULINE CONOLLY’S GARDEN: THE SHOCKING TRUTH!

Desmond Bear 1

Hello,

You know how Pauline  Conolly posts  rather showoffy pictures of her garden?  Well I’m about to take her down a peg or two, hahaha.  Made a little bicycle  tour the other day and by gum there are some pretty dire ‘blots’ !

Here I go down one of the steep paths to a very weedy bit;

Off I go!

Off I go!

Oh for heavens sake. Her steps are all wonky and now look what’s happened….*@#*#! Lots of messy gum leaves too. She should use the rake a bit more.

Down I go!

o!

Here’s her compost area…she never puts up pictures of  this, does she? That long stick is to fend off snakes that might be lurking in there. And what’s that  messy pile of rocks all about?

The compost bays.

The compost bays.

I bet she never mentions her vegetable garden! All she has is a few herbs and  a lonely potato plant that grew all by itself in the compost.  The potatoes will probably taste like rotten vegetables and worms.

Dr Bob did a big clean up of the garage, where Pauline was keeping lots of  rubbishy garden stuff. And, OH MY WORD….I think he chucked her out too!! How very  sad!

I wonder if I should pull her out? Hmm...I don't think so!

I wonder if I should pull her out?

I suppose I should fish  her out but I just need to pop out for a while. Goodbye everyone.

Be back in a while..maybe!

OK Des, I have read this and it is a very silly and unfair piece. As for my wormy tasting potatoes….I harvested the crop the other day. Yes, it was small but we ate the results last night  and it was nectar of the Gods! So there…apology required I think.

 

The best potatoes every grown!!

UPDATE – THREE MONTHS LATER.

Oh my hat!. Pauline was moving the compost heap and she found more spuds! I’ll never hear the last of it.

Oh no, mashed potato fot tea.

Oh no, mashed potato for tea.
