Tank Gardens.

I have whippersnippered and mowed around the tank garden area.
I pulled out a couple of dead cucumbers, saved 3 fruit from these.
Chopped back the big pumpkin plant.
Pulled up the one and only sunflower that grew.  I will collect the seeds from that this afternoon.
Pulled out a heap of grass.
Chopped back the geranium/pelagonian plant.
Pulled out 1/2 dozen beetroot I found hiding under the marigolds.
Pulled all the dead corn out.
Brocilli from the big tank garden has been fed to the chooks as has all the other stuff.

Still a bit more to do but I came in then have been mowing/doing stuff in the van out the front as it got too hot out the back.

Some Tips For You...

Tip 1.  In the long run you save more time by stopping and extending the WS cord then by just doing a *little bit more* and having to stop and pull it apart and rethread.   HoHum...

Tip 2.    It's easier, and doesn't take as long, to find the secateurs if you put them away in their bucket and not put them on the ground and then bury them with everything you pull out.

Tip 3.  Close said secateurs before putting them down and you wont stab yourself in the hand with them when scooping up the grass and stuff for the chooks.
