Yard work is rewarding

Wish I had thought to take a before picture, but two weeks ago this asphalt pad was covered in blackberries up over the roof of the garage and 6 to 12 inches of good compost from 30 years of no maintenance

A couple of full days and nearly every evening working on it and it looks pretty good now. Gives me hope that I’ll have a nice yard again, though I’ll have to be watchful of the stuff creeping back in from the neighbors lots again and I still have a lot to do on the rockeries before they are done.

Loving the summer weather and longer days.


For a sense of scale that chunk of styrofoam is 3 x 4 x 8 feet. It used to be buried in blackberries down by the lake.
