Preparing for the fruit cage


First time we've put a video on the blog, so this is a bit of a test really, hope it works OK... 

We've spent most of the day so far clearing the space for the fruit cage. It was a massive pain to remove the posts and wires etc that made up the old netted tunnel that had been there before but, armed with some wire cutters and a hammer, it eventually all came down. 

Then I dug up the worst of the weeds and dead bits of old fruit bushes etc out and raked it over. Tomorrow we'll  rotovate it all and, time permitting, get the cage itself erected. It's all starting to take shape, just want it up and finished now!
Hope you're all enjoying your bank holiday weekend too.

Well the video worked. It only lasted for 10 seconds though.

Looking forward to seeing it go up. A fruit cage has always been on my list but never got to far!

You know what they say, by failing to prepare you are preparing to fail. Looks like you're preparing well. Hope you've managed to get more done today.
