September 2020

It is still difficult to work up enthusiasm to do more than maintenance in September, especially after the very hot summer we have just been through. There is always clearing up to be done though under trees and bushes as they begin to shed their leaves.  Whilst this would normally be regarded as mulch or an addition to otherwise poor quality soil in other countries, here it may block irrigation points or harbour nasty insects amongst the dry leaves.  So best removed to the compost heap!
