With some help from Daughter #1, I managed to get those grass clippings I had piled up in late November moved onto the garden beds. We got all the old stuff cleaned out and the clippings on in just few hours. (Which, of course, begs the question "Why didn't you do it sooner?" I'm taking the 5th on that one.) Grass clippings may not be the best choice for mulching beds but, as Daughter #1 pointed out, it can't be worse than last years "wheat straw" mulch that resulted in "Wheat-gate". I will, of course, let everyone know how it turns out whether it's good or bad.
|As always, the 'Girls' turned out to "help".|
|Don't let them fool you! Just 'cause they were there at the start and finish doesn't mean they actually worked in-between!|
I thought I would also throw something else Daughter #1 (with some other help sometimes) do each year as something of a Christmas tradition. Each year we sit down and do a puzzle. It's become a wonderful excuse to just stop all the business for a bit and spending time together. It's something we've both come to look forward to in the Christmas season and something we should be able to do for many years to come.
|The bottom of the bowls came pretty quickly. Everything else - not so much.|
