Very soon I’ll be heaving the gas powered grass cutter onto my back for two solid days of tackling the weeds and grass. This area isn’t too bad, about knee-high, whilst other areas are over head height 🙂

I can’t imagine cutting grass over 5 feet tall! And with snakes….I don’t think so. You have my admiration.

No problem with the snakes; they are long gone when they hear the grass machine.
That looks like such hard work…keeping you fit I bet! Are the snakes deadly?
Nah, just grass snakes. They’ll give a nasty nip if trodden on, but generally they do a lot of hissing and if you leave them be, tHey are happy to disappear of their own accord. Get a few small vipers; they aren’t so nice, but generally on open ground ‘warming up’ each morning.
Sounds like you are going to be busy! 😀
For a change, lol
Machete in hand, Uncle Spike tames the wilderness! You go, Spike!!!
Haha; not far off.
Oh my goodness over headheight, they must like the soil. Hope the fruit does just as well as the weeds did.
Haha, I wish….
We have basically zero rain from May 10 till Sept 20 (on average; almost to the day usually), but loads of rain over ‘winter’, and a mix of rain and sun these past two months… It just rained overnight too, so yay, them weeds will grow some more!
Oh, my goodness…you must live in the original Garden of Eden!
We have the snakes too 🙂
Saw five so far this week… must be May shortly then.
