My love of the garden is faltering… I think of a job that needs done and I get nowhere near it!
Things were bought in Scotland and I want to dig them in, but there are apples all over which need picking up. I should probably harvest some and make sure I stew and freeze or bottle them. What a waste otherwise!
That buddleia I talk about is pruned to my head height but needs decapitated but that involves a stepladder! I don’t like stepladders! Plus I look at the bed and realise I’ve been a bit silly. There are actually about four plants, none of which seems in distress, but which create a veritable forest in that bed I only created a few years ago…
I compare it to the other buddleia I have planted and none have fared as well. I need to discover why the plants grow so well in some places but terribly in others. I can see the green bin being overfilled for months to come.
I want to do more but I’ve also experienced dizzy spells more in the last few months and I don’t wish to faceplant into any particular bits of the garden as there’s not really anywhere in the garden that provides a soft landing. I’m working on improving the surfaces but it’s not my forte.
Rain has also returned since the beginning of September and I have an aversion to clearing up in the rain. I am just not on top of the negativity of the month and wish I could find a way of beating it.
