Coppicing

A new pruning saw made short work of coppicing the Hazel bush.

Before

After

And look at all this blue sky. It was blooming cold but it's so much more bearable in sunshine!


And I've finally got around to harvesting the runner bean seeds which I'd semi-intentionally allowed to dry off on the plants over winter. Do you think this will be enough?!!!

Hello? New blog entry due?

Australia is waiting....

Strewth! Didn't know I had a follower in Australia.

It's a bit cold over here you know; none of this heatwave stuff you're tormenting me with. We got to the dizzy heights of 2C today. Things slow down!!

But I've got a weekend off now and hope to be up and at it. Bonzer!!

Well, you know, just whenever you're ready. It's not like we're BUSY or anything.....

Coppicing is great fun because it produces such obvious results. And all that hazel makes excellent supports for peas in a few weeks time!

I wish I had an allotment. We don't have allotments in Sydney.

Or snow.

Or anything, really... :( We rely solely on Other People's Blogs...
