My daughter and I pulled a huge amount of ivy off a barn wall yesterday. The more unmanageable bits (a couple so heavy that I struggled to even drag them along the ground) went on the bonfire heap, but we fed a trailer load into the shredder this afternoon and put it in the compost bin.
I also planted some land cress. Being in and out of the greenhouse a fair bit whilst seeds are germinating has been fascinating. Yesterday morning there were a couple of spinach seedlings that had sprouted. By the afternoon there were at least half a dozen. This morning a single red chard seedling had come up and now there are four or five. I can’t wait for the onions to start sprouting 🙂
