I like to tell people that I let my little patch go wild for the birds, bees, and butterflies but it’s actually because I’m lazy and hated mowing the lawn. A win-win all around.


On the opposite end, I have been cultivating a garden with native plants and pollinators plus a veggie garden in the back and it’s SO MUCH WORK. I think once things are settled it’ll be fine but hoo boy getting thistles and grass tamed is a lot.

Having done the same to my little plot, my biggest problem is snails. Buggers are everywhere and snail poo is surprisingly adhesive when it comes to the outside of my house. My friend said to get some chickens, who apparently love escargot, but the neighbors already give me the evil eye.
