I’ve spent the past four mornings plotting mostly catching up with the dead-heading, grass cutting, hoeing, pruning and weeding that needed doing.
This morning I cut down the genista and dying fire-blighted hawthorn leaving little more than the stumps to deal with. Apart from a handful of thicker branches and trunk I burnt everything else.
I will tidy the area up at my leisure and think about what I’m going to do here.
This is what it looks like now.
On Monday I planted some first early potatoes Lady Christl that I had been given over at the horticultural society trading shed a couple of weeks ago. Fingers crossed they’ll be ready to lift in early October. I’ll be happy if I only get a meal’s worth from each plant.
I’ll probably buy some beetroot, carrot and dwarf French bean seeds on Sunday and sow them early next week.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend!
