Well, after cutting the branches from conifer earlier this morning, I decided to dig the bloomin thing up late this afternoon. Took about 2 hours. I would have posed with it ...as fishermen do with their catch....but I want to remain anno, anonem, aknownim......I want to keep my identity secret ......as I am on the run from the law. ( unpaid parking fine)
Very satisfying job. Removed every root, dug in plenty of garden compost and raked it all level. Got soaked to the skin as it poured down for the last 30 minutes. All foliage and branches dumped (in the little,old lady's garden next door) and just a 6' trunk that weighs a ton to be removed. (it was about 9 or 10 ' tall) Will saw it into 2 or 3 pieces ASAP. Got plants ready. The heavy rain will wash the surrounding lawn and settle the ground but the exciting plantIng is for next dry day.
As I write this the sun has returned, my dog is moaning so I guess it's walkie time
