This past weekend was fairly amazing for many reasons: FFA reunion show, lots of time in the garden, sunny weather, frontyard fence got finished, sausage seminar, a fabulous dinner last night — the list goes on and on. But the upshot? I’m physically exhausted this morning. Not sleepy, but I can feel the last several days of activity in all of me right now.
So instead of mustering up my writing energy I am simply going to post a couple yard photos. The backyard, which I got all cleaned up yesterday, with bean poles installed (and beans planted), lawn mowed and edged with the weedwhacker, mulched areas weeded, patio swept:
And the new front yard fence which was just completed yesterday evening:
I also did a bunch of work in the front yard yesterday, but until I finish the planting and mulching I don’t really want to share. Between the front and back, I worked for five or six hours and am feeling it in my arms and butt today. I may not have got to the gym, but definitely had a workout everyday this weekend.
As reference points, our backyard looked like this the first year we lived in the house – which was already a big improvement over what it looked like when we bought it. And our frontyard? A tad boring, wouldn’t you say?
