Do any of you remember how hard I worked in June, pulling mint and cutting trees out of the
north flower bed?
This was it two days ago.
Here it is as of 2 PM this afternoon. I have most of the trees out of this end.
AND pulled a ton of mint out of it.
Here's the rest of it.
I did not have this problem before because every spring, I dug the trees out
and mulched these beds heavily. I did not mulch this year.
Well, I did, sort of... I used straw.
I'll be working on this half on Monday.
I am going to dig up some of the daylillies and
move them over here to the new house, into some
half barrels, to live until spring.
This is the only one of the vegetable beds I did not heavily mulch with straw.
All of them were pretty clean, the few weeds came right out.
This one has the bristly greenbrier in it, so Monday afternoon, I'll start digging it out.
I think the greenbrier is pretty dead.
Then dirt... and straw on top.
This was the only one of the vegetable beds that was covered... in morning glory. This pulled right out.
Pretty, but sucking the life blood out of everything.
Grandson Jake was helping me, and pulling ivy out of the fence lines.
He's going to do some more of that in two weeks.
I took Jacob home, and the family was getting ready to go to the Royals game tonight, so he
was hurrying to shower and change. Paiton and Madison were going to their aunt's house to
have a sleepover, it was Paiton's first.
Jax's first "coach-pitch" baseball game is tomorrow,
The dogs and I went to the park after church so they could have a late - afternoon walk
after spending most of the day inside. Hopefully tomorrow they will get out to the
old place and get to run some energy off.
Keith will work at the old house tomorrow while I go to the circus... yes, another circus.
We can't have too many in our lives!
