Hoe, instead of mow

We are trying something new this summer at the blue barn.

We have terraced the front lawn between the sidewalk and house and converted it to garden space. It was always a dreadful place to mow, due to the terrain. With the girls now riding the mower the majority of the time, I was worried about their safety on this little patch of lawn. Now it is a non-issue.

The new challenge is to keep it looking at least semi-maintained, which requires a fair amount of hand weeding and cultivation.

We've had rain almost every day of late. Great for the veggies and flowers-and the weeds.


  1. EEEEE! I cant believe you started a blog! So cool, want me to come up and show you some tricks?


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
