Sunny enough for a spot of hoeing

My how those leeks have grown with the last two weeks of rain.
Taking advantage here of a sunny spell, to control the weeds that have come on with equal vigour. The trick is to keep just the top quarter inch of soil moving, slice off seedling weeds whilst they're tiny, and the sun will then crisp them up...
So getting the timing right when the weather is playing nicely is key..
Can be a conflicting time for a grower who is partial to an afternoon on the beach...

Second batch of corn coming on in the background, badger fence still 'hot' ; as reported by Imogen's calf, oops!
