As the head of the seeds and weeds department on our Finca I have returned from an enforced absence accompanied by the recently retired Carol, who deals with the identified weeds and all the heavier and rougher work with relish. Our first week's work is beginning to show results and we are claiming back the garden from nature's grasp. Carol's war on the freely spreading Fenel is being won.
Winter has seen the demise of our young Mimmosa tree. The bougainvilla has died back to almost ground level but is producing new shoots. Everything else seems to be prospering.
