So we were discussing trees and mowing.  Part of the reason why I bought my property six years ago was because of the big trees.  It is hard to grow most things in the full sun in Fl.  These are pics from around the property, two days after mowing and no raking.  I never rake.  The mowed leaves quickly return to the soil.

@ amer: Perhaps then I just need to cut some of the upper paddles off and let them reroot.

Sentient- I am just starting out.  We are converting an old greenhouse into a coop.  My friend just picked up four already-laying cuckoo marans for me.  She's being kind enough to house them with her flock until the coop is ready.  Next time I'll get chicks, but the timing wasn't right.

I'm not sure how long the charge lasts.  I can mow my front and back (about 40 minutes total) on one charge, but I haven't done that it a few years (I now do the back one day and the front on another).   The mower is now several years old and I was worried the battery would not hold a charge as long as it aged, but so far so good!

Annie, do you already have chickens or starting out?  They are one of my favorite garden denizens.

How long does the charge last on your mower?

Idaho-  those are dragon tongue beans.

Annie, what are those short plants with large leaves in the back right part of your back 40?

Comment by amer chohan on March 22, 2013 at 10:29pm

Opuntia in rich soils and by fertilization grow very fast and its lower leaves or stem can't support the upper leaves(mine is in danger of that as it is showing overgrowth). So they tend to fall over. It happens to all opuntias, a little more in case of microdasys. I got my problem solved by introducing them to poor soil and having limmited growth.

Its not consistant watering habbit which matters in case of damage to cactus plant. One overwatering espacially watering or rain in winter is enough to destroy whole year's effort.
