Well I’d been putting it off and off and off and I can’t put it off anymore.
It’s time to tie up the blackberry.
The comfrey has served its purpose of being sort of a green compost so I pulled it and laid it down after some weeding, and pulling the brambles up.
The comfrey might regrow- it’s pretty much a weed.
Quite a lot of the vines had reached into the ground and started to root.
It’s really good I took care of this now and not a month from now!
As you can see it’s a bit of a mess all over.
Had to pull up these top roots as well. I just snipped off the root ball and tied it to the fence.
The result wasn’t that bad. I don’t really have a proper trellis, I’m just tying it to the fence like a yokel.
But at least it’s off the ground and properly weeded.
And I have plenty of space below the top vine to keep things going.
But man I have to ask myself- is all this worth it?
Pie is always worth it.
