For the first time we have had a go at growing maize to feed to our hens and geese and also the goats, it's not going to be a big crop, but we think the animals will enjoy it.

There is always so many vegetables at this time of year, we have peppers and cherry tomatoes, plus a huge number of cucumbers, the land being so fertile requires very little manure, and most things grow well.

We had a problem in June with Colorado beetle on our potatoes and I spent many hours destroying the little blighters, we will have to find an easier way next year.
