You taking the p*ss?

Took the opportunity with first bit of sun for a few days to get out and carry on with the raspberry and general pruning. now I have both buddleia pruned well down to manageable levels, and the raspberries are down to ground level

Made a bit of an inroad into the largest gooseberry, it was getting too big for the spot I have it in, fruitful enough but snags on clothing and washing in the summer. Just removing the old dark wood and some of the lower sprawling branches has given more space already

Added my shredded paper, you know the sort, old bills, letters etc that are not really suitable for general recycling , due to content, I added to my compost Daleks, then sloshed on about two pints of diluted wee to help it all rot down.

The way I figure it, if someone is desperate enough to rummage through my compost to reclaim my wee soaked shopping receipts and stick them back together to find I bought some bread and milk one day they deserve a medal, but they had better be quick, because the wee adds nitrogen which acts as an accelerator and should be down rotted in a month or so
