I never, in a million years, thought I would be the person that LOVES yard work. I’m serious! I love it!! Every time I do something that makes it look better, I feel really happy. It’s like I’m building my own little paradise. The more flowers and trees and fruit we have growing, the more it’s starting to look like a little tropical mecca.
Even the laborious work is really enjoyable. After a day of planting, weed pulling, hauling around mulch and planting soil, I feel good sore. Like the kind of sore where I know I worked hard, did something active and got an awesome workout without having to hit the gym or home videos.
Next on our list, we’re thinking lawn care. Our yard is a little acidic, so we’re thinking 2 treatments of lime this season and 2 treatments of earth friendly weed killer. Seed late August and we should have incredible grass next spring, 2014. I think it will be worth the wait.
