Winter is coming leaves to collect.
The weekend is here and there is plenty to do.
Ive got loads of leaves to pick up especially in the front garden, as there are two large oaks, my cherry and we seem to get everyone elses leaves blow into ours. Not that I mind as I collect them with a leaf blower/sucker that I got as a Christmas present two years ago. This sucks and chops them before I put them in a compost bin to rot down.
The other week I emptied my leaf mould bin and spread amongst the borders and around the fruit trees. it had been rotting down for one year and was a lovely and crumble.
at the moment I have my fire pit out burning excess wood whilst clearing an area behind the shed to make room for storing more plants.
Once this is done, I’m off to the garden centre to see if the box (buxus) is still there that I saw last week as it is reduced (£12.00) and I’m sure I can start triming it into a bear. I say bear as when I passed it last week I thought it lent it self to that sought of shape.
Have a good weekend I know it’s raining in most parts but there is still the greenhouse to play in and garden centres to visit. If you can dodge peolpe buying tat.
