The Return of Bodge It & Scarper

After finally finishing the squirrel proofing of the peach house yesterday, Bodge It and Scarper, alias Mick and Ali, were reunited today to complete the last of the college pruning. This time, the outside peaches and fig.
The branches overhanging the lawns had to be removed as well as reducing their height for easy maintenance and fruit picking.

Before the fig pruning,
Mick wants to play hide
and seek. Can you see him?
Needless to say, the game
didn't last long and the
pruning of the fig began.

All the cut down material
is then transported to
the chipper pile and once
chipped, will be allowed
to rot down and eventually
used around the gardens
as a decorative mulch.
