The big clear

So yes, small kids and gardening are not an easy mix! Yesterday I started digging out perennial weeds. I've decided that once the frost has improved by Jerucalem Artichokes I am eating most of them *parp* and giving away the others for planting in early spring. They are a bit too happy in the garden and are trying for world domination, taking up two areas. Get back, damn you, get back! 

Today I will be planting 3rd hand raspberry canes, which I have mistakenly left in water for a week. Will they grow? I have literally no idea! Also will be trying a spot of permaculture land care by laying dead leaves, and cardboard and topping with compost. I don't have much time for weeding and the middle bed is basically grass at this point!!

Also I need to ban Nath from the compost bin as he's loaded so much scorching chicken run waste that the worm content is basically nil and it stinks of ammonia. I've compensated with dead leaves and comfrey leaves. Hope that works.  Also on the cards will be relaying the wee'd barrier on the paths...its overrun!
