"Don't you own a Strimmer?"
This was the question my friend asked as he walked up to my house the other day. It wasn't meant to be nasty, just in a taking the pee sort of way, but he has a point. My place is looking a little messy around the edges.
|The front yard - but it's full of pallets of bricks anyway|
But then it has done since we moved here really. My priorities have never been about appearance but more on production.
|Up the side of the house - this will all come out when I dig the footings for the extension|
|Up the side of the chicken pen - it's only me that walks up here anyway and I don't mind the odd nettle sting!|
Maybe I should spend a few hours going around the place and trimming around the edges, but then I'd rather spend it weeding in the veg garden or working on my porch. Lack of time at this time of year is my biggest problem and I've just taken on a job where I'm working a few evening each week from 7.30 - 10.00 to bring in some extra money so I have even less spare.
Does everyone else struggle for time as much as I seem to? Do you bother to make it look all neat and tidy?
