The pine straw nest

The kids made a nice little nest out of the pine straw we collected today. We love, love, love pine straw. In my opinion it is the best ground cover there is. It is completely natural and sustainable. Best of all, it’s free. We go to some of our local parks with pine tree stands and rake it up ourselves. It has so many uses: we use it to line the walkways between the rows of our garden, we use it to cover our garden with about 6″ in the winter, it’s also underneath our swing set as a cushion for tumbles.
