Some of the weeds were waist high amongst the fruit bushes,
so Mr L got stuck in straight away.
We ended up with seven wheel barrows full of weeds!
Whilst Mr l tackled the left side amongst the bushes,
I weeded amongst the strawberries
and picked the rhubarb crop.
Well not just picked it, I topped and tailed the stalks
ready to take home for freezing
This is back plot (where we have the bonfire)
it's too much for me to manage now, so it's been
rotorvated and covered to keep the weeds down.
The Comfrey plants are doing well - I will be cropping
those soon for my compost bin, and using some for mulch.
It's hard to see - but all under and around the fruit bushes has been weeded
I have thoroughly weeded around the strawberry plants and thinned them out
Picked, and topped and tailed all the rhubarb
The lawns have been mowed and we are
packing up to make our weary way home
Did I mention that I weeded all around the gooseberry
bushes and gave them a spray
Whilst Mr L was out bowling that night, I washed and cut
a trug full of rhubarb stalks - more than 14lbs of them.
Now packed in bags and frozen ready for next winter
Boy did I ache though!
