We have left some areas to grow wild again this year, the animals of all sorts seem to love it, and are always enjoying them. And it has a real benefit of helping with astronomical seeds costs! David has mowed pathways throughout the property, and the animals appreciate them too (they must, since they're always using them!). David is also working on some ponds. He still has to be very careful because of his shoulder(s) and back but he does enjoy a bit of a dig once in a while.
