Picked about 21/2 lb. blackberries. Finished making the pit for rubbish & treated the first two layers with Adco. Weather misty, still & rather cold.
Ummmm. Fresh blackberries – though it seems late for them. Maybe they just are later in England. We used to pick them in July and eat them warm from the sun. So good. Cobbler, too.
Very late… Blackberries tend to be around in England from late July to early September… You could probably still find some now, but they wouldn’t be much good…
I sent my investigative team on a mission of the highest priority; that is, to determine the precise depth of each “layer” and the dimensions of the “pit” so that I can calculate the probability that Orwell will realize 7 cwt. of compost any time soon, even with the enhanced decomposition allegedly provided by “Adco.”
There are a few other factors involved, like the ratio of garbage to plant debris (he’s been jerking up a lot of plants lately) and actual daily output.
[SPOILER] Today is Sunday. The Revenge-class battleship Royal Oak will be sunk while anchored at Scapa Flow in Orkney, Scotland—by a U-Boat—this coming Saturday.
Ah, the home landfill. There’s a pleasure of a bygone era.
I live in the north of England as saw a few Blackberries about when out walking yesterday (8 Oct). Did not fancy them much as they were somewhat inaccessible – though this may be the reason they were still there.
