Spring has arrived in all it's glory!
so many yard sales. . .
We don't usually buy refrigerators at yard sales, but I did this time.
It sits in my garage now and is perfect for pop, overflow of veggies in the summertime, cartons of berries during berry picking time, thawing turkeys, extra baked items during the holidays.
I never thought I'd be so excited about a $50 refrigerator!
so many chores...
I am trying to get rid of one of my flower gardens. It is just too much trouble to keep weeded every year. We have put down plastic, covered it with mulch and everything, but the weeds still come. I have decided I do not like spending every spare minute in the summer on my hands and knees pulling weeds. So I am doing some rearranging, moving, and getting rid of. I am going to have my son till most of it up and plant grass seeds.
so many DIY projects...
We have also tore out our old landscape timbers in our front flower beds and replaced them with new ones.
so many chores - Oh, I think I already said that, didn't I?
I'm so glad we finally tilled the garden yesterday!
I was beginning to think it was never going to happen.
It has been so wet! The garden space has never had time to dry in between rains.
It wasn't really dry enough yesterday, but we did it anyway,
because more rain was forecast for today.
We had a muddy mess to clean up underneath the tiller.
and, so many weeds....
I love my berries, but I hate the weeds!
If you notice in this picture taken a few days ago, the patch is in bad need of a weeding! You can't get in there close with a lawn mower or weed eater. There isn't enough room and it is too dangerous. You can easily cut down the new vines growing up beside of the old ones. So, I was down there yesterday on my hands and knees pulling out weeds. I'm not halfway done yet, but I'm getting there. Anyone have any good ideas on how to keep the weeds out. I was thinking of maybe laying down newspaper around the plants after I have pulled the weeds. Mulch does not work, the weeds grow right through it.
Spring has arrived and along with the pretty blossoms, yard sales, chores and weeds comes the sore muscles.
I think my favorite season is Autumn!
