The beginning of the year, when the ground is not frozen is a great time to cut down raspberry canes. these are the Autumn late fruiting variety.
The early and main crop varieties are left as these canes will bear this years fruit.
I am also starting to creosote all the fences in the allotment again. I have pushed back soil so the boards can dry out a little before I apply a coating of creosote.
I had to purchase some logs at the wood store today in order to burn a great pile of refuse that was simply sodden. After getting the fire up to a hot temperature it will burn anything, and it did.
