I spent a lot of time today doing yard work. Mowing and trimming back the blackberries.
There are plenty of blackberries still:
The apples, blackberries and blueberries look like they are going to be doing well this year. Hopefully I have not trimmed things back too much. They are so thick that I can still remove a lot of dead wood. I've been trying to compost it all myself and I hoped that my new hedge trimmer would make it easier to cut the branches up into smaller pieces. It is helpful but the wood is thick and tough on some of the bigger branches so I end up cutting a lot of it out by hand.
There is a lot of work left to do.
