November 30 Cutting Down the Gunnera for the Winter November 30, 2014

Not an easy job to tackle at any time but with the threat of frost last week Jim had to set to and get cutting the Gunnera  on the island.  It is a fierce plant with really sharp  prickles on their stalks  so care has to  be taken not to get too scratched!

A brilliant job well done   and the Gunnera ‘buds’ will  now be safe from the frost  for the winter. Sadly, though Jim , who had pulled the boat up the bank  and cleaned it all out had to get  it  out again and row back as he’d left his hat on the island!!

    A good day’s work Jim. Sorry that you had to go back and retrieve your hat. You deserve a special nightcap.
