All the puns at Thorlands have already been done to death...

We wish the bindweed had too, but those pesky roots are persistent. This Saturday the team divided into two: John, Javier and Fi tackled a patch of weeds on the "stage" (also the home to some wandering foxes). They also removed a layer of soil that had been built up there.

The rest of us: Daryl, Nirmay, David and I went on to turn an area of soil on the path we had created months before. The bindweed had gotten out of control and we had to be very thorough in picking out the roots. Hopefully that will be the last of them... 👀
