|water logging in the wooded area last week|
On the bright side, the rain has made it easy to pull out the weeds and we were able to get stuck in weeding the strawberries.
The sun was shining, we were all happy, working together and chatting and remembering picking fresh strawbs last summer and eating eton mess in the shade of the trees! Aahh! the good old days of summer and sun!
I remember weeding the strawberries last autumn, but the couch grass and creeping buttercup have grown back.This isn't as disheartening as it might seem... there's a comforting sense of continuity about the inevitability of weeds.
|The strawbs have been invaded |
by creeping buttercup: Agilmente
The prison estates guys who came to help us chip the wood obviously took pity on us and have donated four very nice wooden benches for us to sit on - so no more perching on logs at tea break! We're very grateful!
If you want to get philosphical, want to help grow strawbs for eton mess or just think helping at the urban farm is for you come along on Tuesdays after 10.00 for a chat or contact Dave at : firstname.lastname@example.org
