Piggy lawnmowers

Thanks to the guinea pigs, the new back garden lawn is getting its second cut. No shirking in the sun, now! Oi! Get back to work! You’ve got a lot of eating to do piggies.

Although they loved the weather and being outside, they did a fairly good job but are really too slow and don’t quite live up to my expectations. When they are inside, we use them as a dustbin replacement for food scraps and I was hoping that when they went outside I could replace the lawnmower and sit with my feet up.

But they like to laze around in the long grass far more than I’d like them to. And I have a problem with their workmanship: eating the grass in clumps rather than trimming it evenly. On the plus side they have been quite good with the manuring.
