The gardening group was rained off for not the first time this winter. However, there is one job that benefits from rain and soggy ground. This is the clearing of grass and vegetation off cobbles as the water loosens the roots. So we had a ‘set-to’ on the cobbles against the raised planter bed we tackled earlier. The cobbles had been made worse recently by silt from the flooding over the Christmas period. We got a few hours in and cleared the worst. It next needs troweling between the cracks and a brush down, but we’ll do that when its a bit drier!
