Some Must Do's

I have been slowly clearing out some of the tank gardens.  Most of what is in them is finished and as the soil is quite diminished it will be a good time to up the nutrients.
I will need to collect a pile of cow manure from the back paddock first so it may be a few days before they are done.  I will also add the top layer from the chook yards and then mulch them with the grass clippings that the chooks have been *refining* for me. 
It will be quite a big job for me and I had given myself to the end of the month but as that is nearly here and I am busy with the van today I have extended my time limit to next weekend. 

The chook sheds need clearing out again. 

The lawns need mowing...again.  daughter T came out and did some of them for me a week or so ago, they will soon need doing again as well.

Hubby is due home today so a tidy up inside wouldn't go astray.  I had all my sewing stuff spread around the place when he left and it is still there...HoHum... I did only finish with it last night though but as I am finished for the time being I suppose I should pack it all away...

First off though is burying a chook.  An old Isa has gone to that big ol' chookyard in the sky and I need to choose a tree for her remains to feed. 

Better be off.
