Some friends of ours came to help us with the garden on Thursday. The back bit of it had been in a bit of a state for a while, especially since the lovely lavetera died after last year’s cold winter.
They (with Mr C assisting) took out all the dead plant, and loads of bindweed that had been growing over it, dug over the soil, added some fresh compost and planted some autumn-fruiting raspberry canes.
I’m quite excited about growing our own raspberries – hopefully I might be able to use home-grown raspberries in some cakes one day…or just eat them fresh! Yum.
