So hot, been wandering around in t-shirts this weekend. You’d not think it was late November. My strawberries are still at it and my orchard is starting to sprout leaves which can’t be good…
This weekend I finally got off my behind to do some work (the release if the latest activision offering of modern warfare 3 hasn’t helped) and I cleared up the orchard. The old tree stumps are now out the front with a strange assortment of wood worm eaten offerings to the freecycle gods.
As you can see we’re having the back fence “done”. My neighbours son has found himself with time on his hands. It was a job I wouldn’t mind doing with my wife, but it was very low down the priorities even though we’d bought the fencing supplies last month. Most of the work is getting the old stumps out which David has done by splitting them with an old ax head and a crow bar of epic proportions.
Next I’ve got to level the ground where the shed is to go and get the foundations down for the greenhouse. To get my ample frame in we’ve decided to raise it up by a few feet on blocks. This’ll make it far more comfortable for me when pottering away.
