|Long grass with tree suckers.|
|Battling to pull out the aspen suckers.|
Work continued on Aspen sucker removal last Saturday. Not a 2 minute job as they were so numerous despite being all cut down in June. Having dug each one up and pulled them out, Chris was then able to cut the grass - a job we would normally do in summer. However with all these monsters, we knew it would only make their removal even more tricky.
Much strimming and and mowing followed and although the ground looks a tad bare, I really don't care. In the grass, we found and rehomed 5 frogs - all with the correct number of legs thank goodness! Well you never know with so much mowing and strimming so always best to count!!
I know the grass will recover from its late haircut and I'm looking forward to stump grinding and tree replacement!!
Should I mention again the removal of a badly shaped and badly placed apple tree from in front of the greenhouse? Absoluttely no regrets! We're really enjoying our new view of the greenhouse!
