The green teasels

The collection of green teasels has begun and as it’s school holidays son comes too…….with bribes of an all day breakfast from the cafe at the end of the walk!

When we got back to the car the windows had steamed up due the the combination of heat and moisture from these cuttings. A few more hours and I would have been making compost. Spider’s webs had already spread across the back of the car and they started moving forward to the front of the car on the return journey……
In the light of past failures with ‘green’ plants and the problems of rotting I must move very quickly with these, and remove all excess leaves and the spread them out one layer thick so as to speed up the drying process. Rain is unfortunately forecast for the next few days, so they will have to be inside…..I’m running out of room.
