Mowing the weeds

Mowing the garden aisles

I've watched neighbors mow for the last two weeks, but didn't particularly think our "lawn" needed to be cut until now. But there's nothing like a preparatory pass of the lawn mower through the aisles to make cleaning up a garden area seem much more feasible.

Actually, I left the grass to continue growing on both ends of the mule garden so I could tether the goats there for company while I weed. Good thing no one except you can see how I cherish our weeds rather than cutting them down.
