Here we are in the second week of the freeze, the days dominated by Christmas tree wrapping and repairs. I am amazed at the early interest in trees. Its probably all down to the resolved needle drop issue.
We are in the process of cleaning up around the site and the troops today have been engaged in 'bench painting' .............what a pity that radio volume doesn't have an impact on paint drying, the benches could have been back out by lunch time.
The slightly frustrating thing about this chill,has been the collapse of soft fruit and bare root hedging sales. We have it all bundled up ready to go,but frankly you need a pneumatic drill to get the things into the ground.
