Cutting the hedge
Mick, on the neighbouring allotment to ours, said he was going to take the top metre off our dividing hedge. I suggested he simply leave the trimmings in the goat paddock. Most of what would be cut would be hawthorn which doesn't have a great deal of greenery on it. The goats however like to eat the twigs. There was also some ivy. Mick did the work yesterday, the goats are happily browsing and the branches that are left once they've finished will be chopped up and used as fuel. Nothing wasted.
