We have a bit of a dandelion problem, and Grandma and the grandkids certainly aren’t helping the situation.
But nobody minds, and really, we have much bigger yard problems.
Problems that require “man work”.
Carl couldn’t have been more thrilled to discover our friends down the road had a little Bobcat sitting in their backyard that he was able to borrow and make short work of a job that would’ve required a permanent membership with a chiropractor if he’d had to do it by hand.
The kids loved it too, as long as it was turned off, and were out there bright and early in the misty morning helping out!
And now the fun part is done, and the real work begins – but it’s going to be so worth it for a more usable backyard! Thankfully they already finished the tiered garden area and after a good week of hot weather and my mother-in-law’s faithful watering, we have beans, swiss chard, pumpkins, watermelon, zucchini, lettuce, spinach, green onions, herbs, radishes, carrots, and potatoes all thriving in their brand new dirt! I may not like summer as a season, but there are certainly some perks that make it bearable.
Do you have any backyard plans for the year?
