Well I am pleased to report that some mysterious entity chain sawed the trees down! I went to the lotty one day to find stumps! This encouraged me to do more, so I hired some very nice Polish lads to dig out the stumps yesterday morning, as that would have been a job and a half for me. Well I am pleased to say that it is done! No more stumps just great big dollops of root balls!
Derek our on site lotty hero / bramble fairy, has kindly said that he would move the white water butt that you can see in the top photo to nearer the fence - it's full of water snails which apparently keep the water clean, as I am not going to be right on top of the water tap as I am on plot 142 it would be useful to have there.
Carl - another lotty hero / branch trimmer has said that once the wood is dry they will burn it, so that's one way to get rid of it!
I will start to clear a small area - probably this week as I am off work for a week and going to potter around - where the water butt currently is. This way I can get some runner beans in (George told me it's not too late) and also put my tomatoes in there as I now, for some reason have had success with raising the 2nd lot of seedlings (the 1st lot got greenhouse white fly and died) I have them in my coldframe in the garden at the mo.
Wow a whole week off, well actually it's 10 days cause of the Bank Holiday weekend - what a result - a whole week when I can go to the lotty when I please!
This is better than a holiday in the bestest luxury hotel in the world - OK maybe not, but it's my little bit of bliss for 10 days
Photo's of stump free Plot 144 will be taken today (weather permitting)..............
And here they are!
The largest stump & the tree that was (with some rubbish thrown in for good measure)
The old henhouse and another stump.
