Why I don’t mow my lawn anymore
I used to mow my lawn at least once a week. It was really pretty. Then I decided that functionality is better than pretty. Now my lawn is full of wild birds flying around looking for bugs and bees buzzing from flower to flower. I don’t have to worry about watering it because the ground is shaded and stays fairly moist. It has wild chamomile, plantain, and dandelion. I give my chickens 2 big buckets full of it a day. This fall I’ll be cutting it down and making haystacks to use for my chickens this winter.
Hope you’re having a wonderful day!
