It’s a new setting, but it seems the Perpetual Garden Clock ticks just as loudly here as in New Brighton – and today something had to be done about it.
The stakes a slightly higher here. Firstly, someone who really knew what they were doing set this garden up. We really have the potential to muck up something beautiful here. Also, the current garden is 90% pretty, 10% tasty; motivation may prove to be a problem in time. But the biggest issue is, not having planted the garden, we have no idea what plant is toxic and what prunings are safe for the critters to chop, peck and ruminate over.
Ah well, every day’s a schoolday.

Have fun in the classroom!
Wow, that is a lot more grass to mow/graze than you had at the old homestead – did you even need a mower there? Yes, I see the dilemma with clippings/weeding and the goats – I guess compost. All part of the adventure!
The mower had long been sold off and now there is talk of a ride-on mower…the threat of fires in the summer makes mowing and big issue here. The good old Nor Wester whips them up pretty quickly
I have a ride on mower, and wouldn’t be without it. Makes a useful cart horse as well, since I bought a small trailer to go with it – 4 barrow loads equal one trailer load for my little mower.
All reviews from those who own them are rave…especially those who invested in a trailer as well
Well you’ll soon find out! 🤣
Seeing it’s your birthday, I’ll give you that one.
Tricky decision making!
A ride on mower would be fun.
I hope it would be the sort of fun others enjoy so much that I never find the need to experience myself
My husband loves ‘his’ ride-on mower – I have never had to use it! He does go a little fast at times and mows things he shouldn’t; barricades of canes round precious plants, for example!
Finding out what is growing in a new garden takes time.
I think the ride-on mower is becoming more desirable to some Homesteaders witb each comment. 😊
I thought it might 😀
