January 10th 2018 – inspecting plants and writing.
The storms have died down for the moment and the sun is creeping out from behind the mist. So I am eager to have a look at my garden and see what jobs I could possibly do while the weather permits.
The fence has been blown down and snapped by the harsh winds on one side of my patch, so that will need rebuilding, and for the moment the wooden entrance is leaning to the south in a rather relaxed looking way.
I haven’t yet pruned the raspberries from late Autumn, I must have forgotten.
After inspecting the plants the patch generally needs tidying up. I don’t want to do too much yet as the ground is very wet though. And I don’t want to make it any muddier than necessary.
