yard upkeep


Recommended Posts

recently my husband and i purchased a man-powered lawn mower from Sunlawn...and all we have to say is that it is amazing! not only does it keep our lawn looking great, but it is safe for my family and the environment. so if anyone out there is looking for a great way to keep their lawn neat & trimmed, look into this mower...as an added bonus, it is super quiet, so we dont wake up our neighbors when we do yard work early on weekend mornings!!

A few years ago we dug up the lawn and planted rhubarb. Now we have more rhubarb than we can use, our friends have stacks of rhubarb. We have enough rhubarb saved so that we can have rhubarb twice a week right through the winter. We are working our way through the recipies on, they are great:

Just had fresh broad beans from the back yard. They are growing their along with runner beans, squashes, salad plants, peas, tomatos, etc.

The rhubarb is in the front garden - about ten large plants, they are just going mad out there. There are also sweetcorns and herbs in the front too. Oh and enough garlic to last the year.

looks like you won't need to buy vegetables for a long time...

Unfortunately, we do not have the space to grow all our vegitables, but the more that people grow in their gardens the healthier they will be and less food miles produced.

So true. But then again, I think we will see less big houses and gardens in the future when the population increases and land gets more and more expensive. :/
