The paths between the beds near the roadway look so good after Lucy and Amy's weeding efforts on Friday that I was inspired to do more. Yesterday, despite insane heat and humidity I tackled the couch grass in the central meeting area: There is still more weeding to do, and piles of weeds which need to go to the chooks, a pile of cardboard to be spread on the weeded area and a huge pile of beautiful wood chip to go on top.
If you're weeding couch or nutgrass please get the entire root system or it'll pop up again healthier than ever!... and make sure the weeds go to the chooks or in the liquid compost or the tough little buggers will somehow find their way back into the soil.
Other jobs which need doing include weeding the paths
and fertilising the bamboo on the South West edge of the Mulch pit and Fruit trees on the western edge with horse poo and dynamic lifter (there is a bag of it in the shade house)
