It is the start of the tick season and keeping the grass short gives us a better chance of not coming in with unwelcome visitors.
I strimmed a path up to the washing line and under it and a path up to the steps to the house and another one down to the car the other side of the house.
I couldn`t possibly do all the land , there is so much of it and it still looks lovely with all the wild flowers so it can wait until the landlord starts to clean the land.
I can keep it down around the house and maybe the noise will put the snakes off a bit. I don`t mind them really but they do make me jump.
I can also clear the area where we are going to put the tent if we get any visitors this year, I am hoping to have a dry run with the tent soon to see how easy it is to put up and take down.
I have strimmed all round the fence of the vegetable garden and Mark and I are going to move the fence out a couple of metres which will give me more vegetable garden and a place to plant the pumpkins and butternut squash. They will need quite a lot of room to spread and I will probably plant the courgettes there as well which will give me more room for tomatoes etc.
