I noticed some weeds growing outside the garden wall that desperately needs a good wire brushing and painting.
Sometimes I just strim the weeds with my strimmer. I don't believe in using weedkillers because they are harmful to the environment and give you Cancer. I was once in a local farm coop and a man came in asking for weedkiller to apply to the weeds growing amongst his potatoes.
I also think it looks awful where weedkiller has been applied and there's a giant like wee stain for weeks and then the weeds still grow back.
I loved it in Detectorists when Andy was working for a temping agency and he just sprayed the weeds on the verges with WATER.
I used my trusty Azada which I believe is the Spanish word for a hoe with a flat blade and long handle.
I soon filled my weeding tub and deposited them in my pallet sided compost heap. Sometimes I give the weeds to the pigs and hens and ducks.
We have seen Azadas being used by council workers in the Algarve and Spain. Their are small ones like onion hoes for flower and veg beds and large ones for tackling big areas like overgrown borders and allotments.
If you want to take the back breaking work out of clearing with shovels and forks..
. I would recommend an Azada. Have you got an Azada or thinking of getting one?
