in which our plucky heroine works with friends...
...Mr Robertson and Heather are mighty... you should see how much better my yard looks!
The agenda for today was yardwork, since the weather is unseasonably warm and dry, which causes the grass to grow like crazy. While I am gradually covering the backyard with mulch, in preparation for eventual garden beds (and because I loathe mowing) the front yard, and about half the backyard are still open grazing. Part of the backyard will hopefully soon be home to three young hens, so some grassy areas will be all to the good, but long grass scares chooks, it might be hiding tigers...
...the back yard after weed whacking, Mr Robertson did yeoman service and spent several hours returning the jungle to a more easy to traverse landscape... the old henhouse is visible near the fence.
This will, in time, become a garden bed for asparagus and possibly one or two mini fruit trees. The entire side yard bed has been full of weed block and grass, now half is full of potential.
Heather pulled all the sod, removed all of the weed block plastic, and then we layered cardboard, wood chip mulch, and then the sod, upside down... over time, and with more compost layered, it will hopefully become a good growing spot. this is the part of my yard that faces south and gets good sunlight
