Doing the jobs that should have been done in September… A quick snip to the raspberry canes and at the back you can see that I’ve completely stripped the brambles back, mounted some green trellis and wound the brambles up. Yes, I’m trying to tame the brambles…
Meantime Helen cleared up the dead mint, planted some spring onions and fed the strawberries. They’re in their last year really so we need to plant some more up this year.
Last years bean bed was cleared up, garlic planted (see last post!) and netted them so the chickens or cats don’t get it.
The greenhouse needed a bit of a tidy and Helen was the woman for the job!
The chickens are happy enough when you ply them with meal worms.
And finally the grape needed trimming. It went bonkers last year claiming everything in sight. This is now set up a bit more traditionally with only fourish vines. Hopefully I’ll get better grapes.
