i'm surprised they haven't figured out how to trample them to get them started, but perhaps they'd need to be shown first...Currently doing garden clean up/out with the help of three sheep and they are doing a fantastic job! Easiest clean out ever. Usually put all that stuff in the coop, so will miss that this year, but I'm glad it's being utilized and put back onto the garden all the same....just a quicker turn around this time.
Yesterday I had a trellis that was wall to wall green vines of tomato and beans and today that trellis is completely stripped of all greenery. A whole bed of overgrown asparagus is currently getting a huge trimming, flowers are being eaten, squash and potato vines consumed and even weeds are being consumed.
If they could get their teeth into those hard pumpkins and squash, they would eat those too. I'll leave those in place for the chickens and to rot down so they are easier for all concerned to eat.
It certainly does its fair share of weed whacking I will have to go out and do more again already. The shire put an article in the newspaper saying the grass is not allowed to be more than 100mm high. This late rain has been really helpful, but is doubling the workload!I love "whipper snipper". We call it a weed wacker
