Blackberry patch number 3 bites the dust and look what we found under this one -- a wood heap. A very nice unexpected bonus given that we buy in wood at this time of year. But it made clearing up the patch hard and took a lot of grunt digging the wood blocks out of the soil. It must have been there for ages. At least it is well seasoned!
Ian's arm is improving so we have been able to get back to the clean up job. The weather over the past two weekends has been perfect for it, crisp and sunny. Our big project has been to attack the blackberry thicket, one of four. It's amazing, this shady space was a tangle of prickly vine on Saturday.
