More of a finished section and a whole lot left to weed section…..
We have Portulacaria (Elephant food) along the back wall. Now this plant is a quick grower and can get up over 8 feet tall. I mean elephants eat it, it has to grow fast. We started this back section of the yard with five or six cuttings from the front yard and it has fully filled in and I continue to cut it back.
We never water it back here. The neighbor has a pond on the other side of this wall and there is just enough leakage to keep it well watered (oh and a lovely mosquito home).
I am always cutting it back to keep it from overtaking the wall but this weekend I decided that the grass now growing up through it needs some work so I spent a good 6 hours out here and got this one section done.
Since there are cats that sleep under it, which was more obvious once I started to cut it back and pull out grass, I made a couple “caves” They are easy to see right now, the good thing for the cats is the Portulacaria will grow back fast enough to make them perfect hiding places again….or maybe that’s purrfect.
The rest of the back is still chock full of grass to pull out, and its full sun back here so I put up a shade structure to move around over me while I weeded!
