The Garden

The Garden

I’ve turned all the earth and removed a lot of the weed roots and some of the stones, but it’s still a long way from being finished. I think I’ll sow grass tomorrow, whatever, but I’ll have to spend an hour or two picking rocks out of it first.

I’ve also sowed some wild meadow flowers at the far end, beyond the compost bins. I’m not sure how successful they’ll be. Even if they are, the flowers won’t bloom until next year.

There’s a new compost bin now, as well. It’s huge. I’ll bed it in tomorrow, probably.

I leave my body to medical science, if medical science will have me, but my heart belongs to BNFL

Aside from all the arguments about the rights and wrongs of nuclear power, I have a few personal reasons to dislike BNFL. One of them is the arrogance of a company that believed it was protected for various reasons. The news that the company took body parts from dead former workers without informing their families is just another example of that arrogance.
