Gardening part two.... (procrastinating no more)...
Sunday, May 23, 2010
Well, I got off my backside and got busy in the back yard. Cleaned up, weeded, cut the grass. Started at about 10:30, took many breaks (it was HOT), and finished about 30 minutes ago (2:10 p.m.).
I'm not quite finished, I have some more plants to get rid of along the fence. I have a raspberry bush there that I want to harvest, so the weeding along there will be done after the berries are picked. The raspberry bush attacked me. LOL. My arms are shredded from the thorns. LOL.
Joked with my older son, he told me it looked great and that I shouldn't have any trouble keeping it looking good now. I told him once a season is enough. LOL.
Here's how it turned out ("before" pictures are in the blog I posted just before this one):
I ended up cutting all the pretty purple weeds and putting them in a vase on my dining room table.
I managed to fill four giant paper garden waste bags. WOW. LOL.
Tomorrow, weather permitting (it's a statutory holiday where I live), I'll tackle the flowerbed in the front.
