Setting The Fruit Free
The fruit garden has been a thorn in the side for me, I haven't spent time getting it sorted the fruit bushes were just plonked in the ground in spring and I got on with other things all the weeds grew up, occasionally I attempted to dig it and tame it but gave up too easily as the ground was so difficult to work with.
Here it is all overgrown and the fruit bushes have been competing with weeds
I set to work with my new tool
I cleared the Raspberry bed and cleared space to get the Autumn fruiting Raspberries that were given to me by fellow blogger Bovey Belle
I then got to work on clearing around the other fruit bushes and the Rhubarb
I am continuing to work up to were the path edges are suppose to be the paths can then be strimmed up to the edge were they couldn't before as you could not see were the young fruit bushes were.
All the fruit here was cuttings I took from my original plants a year before moving, I need to keep them clear of weeds so they thrive, a fruit cage will be built over the whole area, and I still have to clear an area for the strawberries at the moment they are in containers in the poly tunnel they are sending out runners that I will plant up.
Now just to clear up something.
I received a message though my blog from another blogger who will remain nameless, the message went on to say I was a fake and don't really do all this stuff, they claimed that my husband is not really away working through the week and he is here doing all this work and I should stop pretending to be a superwoman and own up to being an everyday housewife.
I was pretty angry at reading this then went to feel hurt then just laughed, if people doubt how I live and what I do they have that right, everyone is entitled to there own views and opinions, I don't claim to be a superwoman and really do what I say I do and yes my husband is working away through the week, this is the life I have chosen and I consider myself as an everyday person.
This was yesterdays post but unfortunately we lost our Internet there was a major fault in the area now I must catch up on what I missed being off line.
