I got out collecting again a few weeks ago with Phil. We managed to get back on to our old Hawthorn site. As my shoulder and neck are not really up to the task any more, I had Jeff my spade buddy along to help. It was Jeff’s first time collecting and after wind hail and even snow, it might be his last 🙂
Part of the site
Jeff perched on the edge
Up in the heights
I see him
That one can stay where it is!
Jeff playing hide and seek, he’s very good at it.
The weather moved in. Grim 😦
Hard to light up 🙂
Some of the booty
Just before I dropped my phone in the muck!
Too big but beautiful, and the trees not bad either.
I got some smaller Blackthorn as well as Hawthorn. At the end of the day I had some potted up and black bagged. Giving this a go to see what the results are like.
That was 2 weeks ago, I opened a bag today and the budding is going well.
A big thank you to Jeff for doing the heavy lifting for me. I haven’t heard from him since! Only joking.
Michael brought his little Blackthorn over yesterday to show us the berries. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them this big on a Blackthorn. There was more on it but his erratic driving on the way over put an end to that!
