I got a ton of work done in the yard this weekend. Of course there is still a ton to do. I've learned that I really like cutting shit down. I've had some serious bonding time with my limb clippers and god do I enjoy the satisfaction that comes with excising dead, overgrown, or superfluous vegetation. It might be a bit of a metaphor, but it's fun and surprisingly good stress relief.
I don't have a lot of space in the yard that gets enough sun to grow veggies, so I'm learning to be creative and maximize it the best I can. I snuck in a second small raised bed that is housing cukes and jalapenos. I even stuck squash in what will someday be a perennial garden.
So far, so good I think.
