Well I have really broken all the gardening rules lately! I have so much to do and spring seems to be getting dangerously close, I really need more hours in the day ( and possibly some extra energy too! )
I wanted to transplant some raspberries to a new growing area, but the weather has not been on my side. Snow, hail, rain, freezing cold, which means one thing. Mud, mud and more mud! They say keep off the ground if the mud sticks to your boots. Well I’m sorry but I was up to my knees carrying on regardless! It was a moon fruit day and half term so I had assistance so I went for it, despite the snow and mud! Goodness knows if the poor raspberries will survive and grow, they nearly had my wellies planted next to them a few times too. I don’t think drying out is going to be a problem with this new patch either, in fact I am making plans to straw between the rows to try and soak up some of the excess. My daughter found the whole thing very entertaining anyway, seeing her mum sliding around knee deep in muddy puddles. Peppa pig would have been proud!
