Feeling Blue

BY ANDREW SOUTHWOOD “That’s it. I’ve had enough. I’m never coming to this place again!”… ...or words to that effect. That was my reaction following my last visit to Portman Road, home of the once mighty Ipswich Town. In 30+ years I don’t think I’ve ever felt so despondent at the end of a season as I did in May. Even the unshakable optimism of youthfulness that normally rubs off from my son, was starting to fail me. Still, here we are, 3 or 4 months later and the new season is upon us. Time is a good healer and the break did us all good. I admit I probably said some things in the heat of the moment that were a little harsh (but some were, and still are, totally justified!) nevertheless, the broken relationship between me and my club is starting to rebuild, slowly.

42 | SEPTEMBER 2017

Yes, they are owned by a multi millionaire businessman who clearly doesn’t know or care about Ipswich like the fans. True, the manager is not a flamboyant crowd pleaser. Even the chairman seems to lack basic business sense. However, this is where we are and there’s no point dwelling on the negatives. The club must move on and must try to help it. If I stop going to matches, my son stops going. If he stops going now, he’ll end up ‘supporting’ Chelsea or Man City like a depressingly large number of his peers already do. When he’s a teenager he wont be going and ultimately his kids wont go (because he wont take them). This seems like a fairly obvious long term spiral of doom for Ipswich that must be avoided at all costs. The silly thing is, Ipswich are in an almost unique

situation. Geographically there are virtually no other league clubs to compete with for support. Head up north to Rochdale for example. They have at least a dozen or more other clubs all within 10 miles of them, vying for any stray/disillusioned supporters wanting to watch live football. Here, Portman Road remains less than half full, whilst the other half stay at home. They are not attending other matches, they are simply waiting to be tempted back. There are only two things that will tempt them back; entertainment and value for money. Two things plainly missing last year. Let’s face it, only an idiot would go back for more. Needless to say, I already have our tickets ready to confidently (cough cough) take our seats for the new campaign. My hopes for the year are simple – avoid the drop. Anything else is a bonus! #ITFC #OneOfOurOwn

Pauls jobs for the month Fruit

Vegetable Garden

General Maintenance

n If you are lucky enough to have one or two Apple trees then a sure sign that they are ripe is when you start to see windfall apples around the tree. n Plant strawberry plants this month. Or use the runners to establish new plants n Pick pears plums and damsons

n Lift and harvest your late potatoes and onions n Keep the hoe going to prevent weeds getting the upper hand n If your tomatoes are starting to split this is a sure sign of uneven watering. Try to ensure the compost never dries out n Lift marrows, pumpkins and squashes off the ground with straw or upturned plastic flower pots, in order to keep them clean and reduce slug damage. n Keep the runner bean harvest going as long as possible by regularly watering and removing any older pods on the bush

n September is a good month for repairing or laying lawn turf. Scarify the lawn and lay lawn seed. Give your lawn a tonic with a fertilizer feed. n Top up bird baths regularly n Clean out bird feeders and start to replenish with seeds and nuts n Cut back tree branches and hedges overhanging your garden border n Now is a good time to clean water butts as accumulated debris can pollute the water n If you have Water lilies in your pond you will know they grow vigorously. Keep on top of them by removing leaves regularly before they rot in the water

Flower Garden n You can start to plant spring bulbs n Again with Spring in mind plant wallflowers now n The middle of September is the very latest date for planting Christmas hyacinth bulbs so that they are in flower for the 25th December n Look out for opportunities to collect seeds from your perennials n Tidy up ferns by removing dead brown fronds around the base n Prune your climbing roses this month- remove some of the oldest woody stems and tie in any new shoots that are emerging n Continue to deadhead your Dahlias, Penstemons and Roses n Most perennials benefit from division every two to three years to maintain health and vigour such as Japanese Anemones n It’s a good time to take hardwood rose cuttings

“Spring scarce had greener fields to show than these Of mid September; through the still warm noon The rivulets ripple forth a gladder tune Than ever in the summer; from the trees Dusk-green, and murmuring inward melodies, No leaf drops yet; only our evenings swoon In pallid skies more suddenly, and the moon Finds motionless white mists out on the leas.” - Edward Dowden, In September One-off jobs or regular maintenance on a weekly or monthly basis hedge trimming | grass cutting | general weeding & tidying up

Ickworth

Celebrating the Roots of

Delve into the craftsmanship behind Ickworth this autumn, with a five week programme celebrating the world of wood. Starting on 4 September, we will be showcasing the artistry of wood - what it made, how it helped build Ickworth and what we use it for now. Explore the world both indoors and outdoors, from the never before opening of a William Morris cabinet in the House to discovering the Life of an Ickworth Oak with our ranger volunteers. The programme will offer a range of walks and talks from an informative look at our Biomass and how we heat Ickworth, to a visit to our Walled Garden where you can pick and taste the variety of our apples grown.

Families can take part in acorn and conker collecting, as well as completing an outdoor trail around the Albana to see what trees have grown at Ickworth and how long they’ve been there. During our Living history days you will be transported back in time to explore the role of the Head Forester on the estate, and how those in service cared for the wider estate. We will also be running Cooks in the Kitchen workshops where you can bake traditional autumnal 1930s recipes in the basement finishing kitchen. The Roots of Ickworth will culminate in the hugely popular Wood & Craft Fair on 7 and 8 October. It’s a weekend of ‘treemendous’

fun as we showcase the very best in woodcraft and country craft from local people and businesses. Watch as a traditional steam engine miller cuts timber, indulge in all of the handmade crafts and trinkets for sale and be inspired by traditional skills being displayed for all to see, including a pottery tent with Raku firing. There is also a rare opportunity to buy wood from the Ickworth estate, felled and milled by our very own Ranger team. There will also be plenty of food and drink available including our BBQ, using the finest cuts of beef and locally brewed ales.

For more information on our programme of activities and to book onto our workshops visit nationaltrust.org.uk/Ickworth or call 01284 736270 SEPTEMBER 2017 | 75
