The Vegetable Garden Revisited

At the end of December I took this photo of the vegetable garden. You wouldn't believe it, but there are edged gardens in there. One has asparagus and one has potatoes - the others are full of weeds.
My "have to" job for the summer was to cut back the grass. Even the chooks had to tread a path to get a garden to scratch, dust bathe and fertilize in. You can see some of them here:
Today, after approximately 8 hours of mowing with our DR Trimmer, I have finally cut back all the grass, and this is what I had hiding there.
At the end of the gardens you can see Ginger (our cow) - she has been helping me dispose of the long cut grass. Tonight we dismantled the wooden edging for some rethinking and replanning on this area. More photos on that when that is done.

Bloody hell Erilyn .. what a difference. You have been really busy. Surely no one could say you are a lady of leisure now :-)

Erilyn said...

Yep, and the inside of the front door is finished - we've already forgotten what the undercoat colour was, even though we looked at it for 9+ years!

Wow, Erilyn you leave me to shame. I've got so many things to do and haven't done any of them over the hols! But visitors nearly all over for the summer! You've made me wonder about doing up an old cupboard unit rather than throwing it out. It's rather handy but not very pretty. See you on Monday night. K
