The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Weekend to do List

Today it has been 19 degrees C! That’s a good reason for three blog posts!

We’ve been busy. It seems we’re not the only ones!

At Home

Start new parsnips ✅
(The last lot dried out)

      Just make sure they are hemmed in. They will spread like wildfire!

        Thanks for the info! I don’t need to be digging to clear them as well as weeds lol. How would I hem them in?

        We gave slabs in the ground around looks like a grave!

        Guess you have to put the slabs in quite deep?

        We just used the largest pavers we had. The bed is one wide and two long. It helps to stop their passage well enough. There’s a photo on today’s weekend to do list post.

        Okay, I’ll take another look.

    Got the idea re hemming them in! Now I need to find a source for some slabs – hmmm.
