Working Out In The Garden

My gym today? My yard.

I spent about 4 hours after work weeding (and a little mowing). I got all the weeds out of the brick walkway and got the back part of one side done. Just have one big section left (in the front, then I can move onto the side yippee). I worked on that section awhile back so it shouldn't be TOO bad.

While I was out working in the yard Trevor asked if he could mow the grass. Um yeah! He's 10 now, plenty big enough to help mow.

Scott did the majority of the mowing yesterday but ran out of day light so Trevor worked on what was left. He did pretty good. He probably mowed for 45 minutes or so before he got too tired.

There is just one area in the back of the empty lot that needs to be done. I figured I'd finish that up tomorrow.  I love when the field is green but it's a lot of work!

I need to buy some hedge trimmers now that my little bushes are finally getting bigger! I trimmed them with some little hand clippers for now. I need to move a lot of things around in the garden. I had planted a lot of things when they were really small and now they are BIG and all crammed together.

I also have a gopher in my garden. I need to dig out my gopher pellets. Little bastard.

I am so glad I took tomorrow off. I think my plan is to work in the yard until I get tired and then I'll go run errands. We'll see how that works out.Pin It

I remember when there was almost NOTHING in your gardens.... they have certainly come along well. You are such a good girl... gardening is one of my pet hates!
Can't stand dirt on me hands!
I hope you get everything done that you want to.
I wonder how long Trevor is going to 'enjoy' doing the mowing! Knowing kids like I kinda do... I give him two more times before he finds something better to do. *smiles*
