Mow Town

It’s official: Spring is here… And the clich├ęs are too. The birds are singing and the flowers are blooming but I’d like to add one to the list: the grass is off the richter!

We’ve had beautiful Spring rain and teamed with that warmth in the air, our grass is growing spectacularly. By my calculations, I reckon it adds a millimetre to itself per minute.

I’m keen to employ some assistance for mowing in the form of wooly helpers, read sheep. We’d need to get some new fencing arrangements so in the meantime, it’s me and the tractor VS the lawn. Hubby’s on the mower too and as a team, we’re in front… Just!

Thankfully with the perks of modern equipment, it’s a relatively palatable task. So here’s to Spring rain and sunshine!




Boys toys

I have to say, I love cars. A good Maloo on display at the Deni Ute Muster does it for me. There’s something cool about sleek curves and a throttling engine.

Today my machine and I are out in the paddock doing some clearing. Small and compact, this little Kubota works a treat when it comes to getting stuff done. Mowing, pushing and digging, this orange pocket rocket is my friend. Give me a boys toy any day.

P.S. It’s even better when your hubby is doing the loading. That way my manicure stays intact :0)
