Yup, that was me today; bent over double pulling out grass before it seeds. Or at least before it seeds too much.
It's a big yard. A very big yard. It's going to take years, I fear, to tame it; if indeed we ever do. But we're working on it. We have one raised bed filled with dirt and mulched; I've started planting it. I have two rows of bush beans in, and flowers planted around the perimeter. It's right outside our living room windows, so I wanted something pretty to look at as well as something good to eat in there! Tomorrow: more weeding, and planting lettuces and basil.
And maybe a little bit of beading. Didn't get to that today!
