No, that’s not what I wore to work in the yard. It’s what I wore when I left the yard to go to Costco. (where I bought the big pot I planted the herbs in for $17). And there you have my weekend.
We are renting, so there’s not a whole lot I can REALLY do with the yard, but it’s such a disaster that I’ve had to do a lot to make it enjoyable. Mostly pulling weeds and removing dead bushes/trees, and trying to grow grass. Well, Leo is trying to grow grass, I do plants and flowers and weeds and he does grass LOL.
I think the owners have never lived here, and honestly didn’t put much thought into the landscaping. It certainly hasn’t been maintained at all; things just grow wild back here. There are a few rose bushes, a couple of crepe myrtle trees, a pecan tree, a mulberry tree, and a rose of sharon, but interspersed between all of those things are vines and weeds that are out of control. So I spend the weekends trying to clean up what I can. So, really, I don’t expect anyone to appreciate these “after” photos, but I had such a sense of accomplishment this weekend LOL. Yardwork is SO hard, but very satisfying!!
I also planted a few herbs in a pot finally, so we’ll see how they do. I had hopes to do a raised bed with herbs, but it’s a little late to start that now, so I settled on a big pot. I can’t EVEN begin to dig in the dirt here, it’s too rocky for me to get through, so I’m not planting anything in the ground.
Anyway, that was my weekend. How was yours??
