I have been wondering whether to cut down the phacelia in the front garden, especially since it was somewhat affected by the frost on Monday.
However, I’m glad that I didn’t because I was amazed by the following sight when I went outside a little while ago:
I can still do other work. Namely, grass from the original lawn continues to grow, so the plan is to lay down more cardboard (been hoarding it since I discovered its uses in the garden) and cover it with compost. I would like to avoid attracting neighbours’ pets, so after the effect manure had on them earlier this year, I think homemade compost is the preferable option.
Besides, this creates a closed loop and fits in nicely with the idea of producing no waste. In this case, no plastic packaging or petrol miles, as well as saving me money!
