The raspberries are loosing territory!

The whole morning was occupied with cutting more raspberry plants down to the ground and, extract small tree roots with help of our little jeep. 
The open space revealed to us six concrete blocks and, we assume that they must have been foundation for a small barn way down in the past. When hubby tried to get these out of the ground it showed they were rooted deeper than anticipated.
Luckily a contractor was working on the neighbouring property and, he came over to offer us help. With his equipment it took about halve an hour to remove all concrete blocks. He was friendly enough to also remove several boulders he found in the ground. The clearing is now ready to be shaped into something.
And there was that part of the wall that we failed to finish up last fall, and since the weather was right I started on the priming process. 
As to the question why I didn't complete the task, I will tell you that there was only a certain amount of paint in my can. I figured that I would have to start supper by the time it was used up. (Which was not a big affair today, just leftovers.)

Die Himbeeren sind im Moment auf der Verliererseite. 
Den ganzen Morgen haben wir damit verbracht weiter Himbeerbüsche zu entfernen, Steine zu sammeln und kleine Baumwurzeln wurden mit Hilfe unseres Jeeps aus dem Boden zu reißen. (Weiterlesen : siehe "read more")
Auf der freigeräumten Fläche waren  nun sechs Fundamentblöcke sichtbar.
Wir nehmen and das hier einmal eine kleine Scheune gestanden hat. Diese Blöcke saßen ziemlich tief im Boden und um die zu entfernen brauchten Hilfe. Glücklicherweise war auf dem Nachbargrundstück ein Mann mit seinem Bagger am Werk. Der hat uns dann schnell geholfen die sechs Betonklötze und auch noch ein paar Felsbrocken aus dem Boden zu holen. Nun ist die Fläche leichter zu bearbeiten. Wir müssen uns nur entscheiden was wir damit anfangen wollen. Garten oder Rasen?

  1. Well, I love raspberries. I'd be sorry to see them go.


I love getting a comment from you now and then. Be patient, they will appear, I just have to see first if they are OK to publish. No anonymous any more. I am getting too much spam.
