Blackberries

This week David has been working on the bank behind our future blackberry row. After dividing a number of monkey grass clumps David planted them. Then he added concrete blocks to the top of the retaining wall to help hold the dirt while the grass is taking root.

He also removed an old white lilac bush to make more room for the blackberries. He managed to save a couple of small stems with roots. Hopefully, they will start to grow again in the spring.
