Pulling up the thistles
I was out on Sunday morning in Whickham with my Planting Up Whickham hat on. There is a large flower bed next to the side entrance to Chase Park on Rectory Lane. It was full of thistles so I was delegated with the job of removing them. I spent about an hour pulling them out. The job is not yet finished. About a quarter is still left to do. The thistles have been disposed of sustainably. I fed them to my goats! They love them!
