Today I have cut stuff down and cleared stuff out – its about the last chance before it starts to grow – and birds start to nest…..
I’ve cut the hedge outside the kitchen window so I can see the allotment from there, plus keep an eye on what mischief the Chickens are getting up to. There is a honeysuckle where the telegraph pole is – so I am sure by Autumn the view will be blocked again!! I’ve also done the regular Bramble cut – going round the woodland front garden and cut the bramble at ground level to discourage them and stop them taking over. I have scratched hands to show how much fight they put up!!
I’ve planted the remaining 5 fruit trees (Mr Middleton would be pleased!) in the Orchard field. I’ve fixed the Geese electric fence as well – The Winter wind had blown some of the supports fairly low.
Also the Crocus and the Blue Bells planted before Christmas and now poking up – three of the Crocus are in flower. Spring is coming!!!
Tomorrow more planting.
