Friday 5th April 2019

Every now and then, Friday Group venture out of their comfort zone and head off to someone else’s garden to dig and delve.  That’s exactly what happened this week – and here are the photos to prove it.  Starting with a trio, to give a brief synopsis of the whole session…

1. Before

A lovely setting, in a secret location close to Brighton, giving wonderful views from the back garden.  But we have no time to look at views – we’re getting down and dirty.

Clearing beds and tackling that old perennial favourite – ground elder.  Arrgghh!

All that ground elder is grinding us down

But we in F/G are not deterred

Or are we?

Never!  We just keep at it

And triumph!

We’re just so cheery

Even when we have to support a tree

We are the champions

And here, there’s a bit of archaeological excavation going on.  What on earth have they found?  Nothing sinister, I hope……

Some shallow steps leading down the side of the garden.  Lovely!

Good job somebody’s working hard

Someone boasting about how much cake they ate…

Really?  That much?

Can we come again next week?

Cleared steps, cleared beds, cleared/composted raised bed.

Boom!
