brambles Oct 16 (1)

The Whinnies Community Garden (we rent our allotment from them) has a shrubbery that has been smothered by brambles so they asked me if I could cut them back (and use them as goat food). I was happy to oblige. I was surprised at just how extensive the bramble infestation was. So I've made a start on chopping them back. The clock is ticking on this however. The brambles are still in leaf but they will be gone soon, at which point they are no longer any use as fodder.

The photo above was taken before the clearance work started. Below, some of the brambles have been cleared. Bottom: goat dinner time.
