Then I went on to the plot to finish digging out the roots and weeds in the path alongside the raspberries. The ground was rather wet but broke up easily enabling me to tease out the raspberry roots and, more important, the bindweed roots. At the end I needed to mulch the path but had no more pine needles so I raided the wood chip pile by the gate.
I nearly gave up earlier when it began to rain but, by the time I had finished talking to a neighbour, it had stopped. It was a great feeling actually finishing off a job!
I remembered to cut the tiny cauliflower and took it home. If we share it we will have a mouthful each!
