A few of us turned out today to pull up nettles!!!! Why-oh-why do I always do these things in a tee-shirt!!! My arms are itching like a dog with a flee… ;o)
But we cleared a huge area in the picnic clearing and this will give other wildflowers a chance to become established. We tried to burn off the piles of nettles that we pulled up but the I didn’t bring any kindling so we will have to do this on the next workday.
Next workday is pulling up more nettles and as mentioned on the last blog is on the 19th June. Strangely it is really therapeutic and calming. I don’t know why but we all really chilled out with it today.
As a priority we need to get the picnic bench fixed and both of them sunk into the ground.
John is in the process of making up what needs doing in the September to March work season. We have maps and pictures and what he is working on is looking really good.
Look forward to seeing you on the next work day..
