I've just come in from a morning's digging. The full sun border is on its second dig over to eradicate raspberry runners from the soil completely, turning to the depth of my fork and going deeper whenever I discover a runner. Had a small bit of bind weed along the back fence as well and two runners going into the lawn that I am unable to dig out. Hubby tells me he will mow them into oblivion, I just hope they don't turn round and come back into my border
All the woody parts of the dead Pampas grass are bagged up ready for removal whilst its mountain of dry leaves and rotted matter at its centre is piled up in a heap on top of the crator hole that I will leave to quietly compost over the coming months or move to my compost bins to speed things up depending upon time, space and energies.
I'm knackered now
