Morning Brumbull

Glad to hear you've found a nice property, hope your offer gets accepted and your old property is sold quickly. By the way, just to be nosey, what business are you in?

Have a safe trip to the Midlands and greetings to Albert.

Before planting your raspberries, you should also remove the stony ground and replace it with proper humus. Your raspberries won't be happy there otherwise.

Monty Don showed that on Friday night. Cut them down to about 8 inches, put in an old bucket, cover with old compost or leaf mould and put in a cool dry place, no light needed. Water very occasionally, just so they don't driy out completely. Although I must say, I just let my dry out and soaked them in Spring for an hour or two before planting, they came up big and strong.

I've been retired for 4 years now, bliss! The only problem is, I find myself procrastinating, i.e. thinking to myself I don't have to do this today, can do it tomorrow or the day after, especially things I hate doing, like housework, cleaning windows etc. It's a hard life!

The only thing I would like to rip out is our thuja hedge, but at least it keeps grockles from peering in from the road! Am too attached to everything else.
