|Autumn in the garden
||[Sep. 20th, 2016|09:12 pm]
Garden waste is collected every other Wednesday, early. That gives me me two weeks to get my money's worth by filling my wheelie bin with garden waste (brambles, mostly). Sometimes I do this before Tuesday afternoon, but not this week. It was raining very, very slightly, so gently that it didn't even make me wet, but I could feel it.
durham_rambler complains that by cutting back the brambles I am depriving him of blackberries, but these are not the kind of brambles he has in mind. This afternoon I gathered less than two spoonsful of fruit from a yardage of vegetable barbed wire sufficient to fill a bin nearly as tall as I am - and maybe half of that, certainly the largest, ripest berries, came from reaching over the wall into the bottom of next door's garden.
The robin came to see what I was doing, but he didn't hang around to supervise.
