Well, lots to do in the garden at this time of year. Sheltering the plants which dont like frost, pulling up the tomato plants, cutting back the bushes, and topping up the compost heap.
But, i wanted to share a great tip i learnt from our resident garden expert, David Bates. You see, before, i used to rake up all the leaves on the grass which, was a pain in the bum. Especially when you have three very curious chickens following you around and jumping into any pile that you try to make and scratching them across the garden the moment your back is turned.
However, David told me to re-adjust the blade height on my rotary mower to its highest setting and then run it over the lawn as normal. I did this and hey presto! It sucks all the leaves up…great! Although it only works with a rotary mower.
Now when i tell Carrie that i’m going to hoover the lawn, she doesn’t look at me and roll her eyes like she did the first time i told her!
