Greetings folks. That's a photograph of one of my conversation pieces that I sometimes entertain visitors who visit Northsider Towers. I bought it from a German gentleman who informed me that it was invented in Germany and Austria during the Second World War. Mr Hitler and his pals decided to confiscate or even collect any chemicals from the German households and use them for ingredients to drop on the enemy.
No longer could farmers use artificial fertilizers or weed-killers so they had to go organic or even chemical free. I am told that smallholders went back to farming methods that most farmers had been using for thousands of years.
I would love to be an organic smallholder but there is so much red tape and if you want to get any organic knowledge about vegetable growing or keeping organic livestock you have to pay to go on a course or something.
I haven't used any chemicals on my garden vegetables for nearly twenty years now and never will. But when it comes to the farming side I'm afraid I have to use some chemicals. The cattle need dosing for Fluke and Lice and stomach worms.., and the soft rushes seem to be everywhere this year. So it looks like the chemicals are going to have to be poured into the knapsack sprayer. You just can't win can you?
Why is the sun always shining when I watch England play at Lords?
