Having a little fun at the expense pun intended, of my friends and neighbors. I do not pretend that I never use gas powered equipment in preparing my garden plot or in keeping the grass and weed at bay. Generally I pay my grandson to till my garden plot onetime every spring and to mow one or sometimes two times a year.

My chickens and ducks keep the grass and weeds down to a manageable height the rest of the time and if I loose control of the weeds and grass, I turn a cow or two on to it for a few days. Grass and weeds disappear and I get some free mature for my garden or compost pile. I do realize that most gardeners don’t have the cow option!

  2. No my garden’s not big enough for a cow. Then again it’s not big enough for one of those machines either!!
    So, I’ll stick to doing my own digging, mowing, planting and such like and keep it instead.

      Grinning.. I do understand that not everyone is lucky enough to have a 1/4+ acre for chickens to free range nor do they have a few head of cows on hand and on pasture for a cheap quick fix when it becomes over grown with tall pasture grasses and weeds. I do consider myself one of the lucky ones. It only took me 65 years a few years to get to this, what is for me an idea retirement plan..
      Happy gardening


  3. i broke down and bought one of those high price tree cutting chainsaws this year after so many border trees had died. Boy was I doing some fancy cutting on some pine trees that had died. Then I hit a few cedars that had died and it came to a slow crawl. Every five minutes you had to tighten the chain. Then it was burning the tree into as much as cutting. Not a happy experience, but what do you do when your old and can’t use a tree saw more than five minutes. ( new recommendation, Never get old)

      Grinning, If your not as lucky as I am and have a big healthy 22 year grandson to do your dirty work for you.. I’d do just as you did. I’d get mo-power and hack ‘dem’ dead and dying trees back to the ground doing my best to keep both hands and feet properly attached..
      Sorry to hear that you lost so many trees.

      Happy gardening
