I have decided that I really, really, really have to cut back my yard!
I am not sure how I want to do it, but the exhaustion of getting the yard ready for spring is making my bones ache
I know that I want to keep this wee area it’s not hard to take care of, the weeding and watering all happens quickly, and the blooms within is lovely
But this bed is huge and causes my muscles to shimmered and tremble at the end of each weeding session….not to mention the hours worth of watering every other day
And this one…it exhausts me just to look at it—grass is starting to take over and it’s close to impossible to get rid of it
I just finished two hours raking along here…sigh.
So I’m taking this year to somehow shrink my workload and watering load in my yard/gardens.
I haven’t figured out how yet…but that is my goal this gardening year. Somehow, some way to shrink at least THREE gardens, which will cut down on the watering, weeding, and planting.
Sadly it will take away my blooms, but it has to be if I’m going to keep helping Terry on the farm and have a yard.
So now you know my spring, summer, and fall goal. We will just have to wait and see what I come up with and still keep the integrity of my yard intact.
