I've been thinking of the gardens, probably because I haven't been able to be in them much. Maureen has been doing the Lion's share of the work, tho I did help with the weeding. The bermuda and weeds had gotten out of hand and we had to resort to a herbicide (for the first time and just in the walkways) and a lot of back-breaking work to clean the beds. It is now a much better looking garden. Sorry no pictures at this time, and no 'before' pics because it was just plain depressing there for awhile and we both avoided even going over there....which just compounded the problem. Benign neglect makes for much weeds.
Another project has been the patch of grass that will be a fruit tree bed in the future. We had removed all of our grass in our yard to put in vegetable gardens. This was a dirt area the dogs liked to lay in and play in, so we thought to make it a bit more presentable for us and comfortable for them.
