    On the plot - I pruned the Autumn Raspberries and tidied up the strawbs.
    Pruned the roses in the hedge, then harvested leeks and a white cabbage.

    In the garden I did a bit of tidying and bagged up rubbish for the binmen. In the greenhouse I pulled out all the grotty salad that the slugs/snails have ruined, despite the blue pellets of doom

    Sat and had a cuppa in the sun

    Thoroughly cleaned and disinfected No1 Greenhouse. I am now largely germ free too (over-enthusiastic use of a spray bottle full of ***** Fluid).- and high as a kite.
    Pruned blackcurrant, gooseberry and autumn fruiting raspberries.
    General tidy-up -raking up of further leaves, clearing of spent cauliflower stems, assembling stuff I want to burn,
    Opened sheds. Looked inside. S'funny, didn't hear that bomb go off. Shut sheds and quietly crept away....
    At least I know what my next job is going to be...

    ^^^ Loving ***** Fluid! Always clears my sinuses. Did mine out with that too but back in November with a repaint in early December.

    Anyhow, today it was the girls' turn! They had a grub out and I cleaned their des res Eglu out. We moved them to another patch in the orchard area of the garden so that they could catch some rays!
    Whilst up that end of the garden we took down a twenty foot holly tree and logged it to season. Still clearing said area so will start again tomorrow. It's given me some beanpoles and an area for a veranda and cabin cum summer house.
    Hot bath now and a takeaway for dinner as we are done in!

    (Yesterday). Planted 200 willow cuttings as wind breaks. Planted into polythene. A nice and quick job but moving stones to hold down the polythene sheeting was hard work. Really pleased with the cuttings and we are looking forward to having some height and greenery in what was, until recently, a paddock. Hopefully these will provided enough cuttings next year to continue the wind breaks round other parts of the garden.
