Mulberry surrounded by horse poo, zuchinni seeds planted in the poo by me and little on this week. Newspaper and poo laid over grass = instant new garden bed! Hope the manure is not filled with too many grass seeds
Mr Bowerbird is non stop mowing lately. Everythinge is so lush and green. This is our cordless electiric enviromower. I LOVE it - it's light, you just push a button to start it, and it sounds like a hair dryer. Just put battery back on charge when you're done then away you go. It doesn't like mega long grass so does require you to keep on top of things. Did you know lawn mowers generate enormous emissions?

That grassy time of year has me turning to these, they work quite well (have converted a number of friends and family) but it has been a particularly bad year and some days they just haven't cut the mustard. Would be great to hear any other good hayfever tips you have.
Lots of beautiful gardening days this week. I am very proud of these perfect carrots, 7 years trying and finally some success. Fussy little blighters they are - no fresh manure, no clay, not too rocky, no competition, planted at just the right time, thinned correctly....They are worth all the trouble, delicious. Kids quickly devour this much each day!
