It was a very productive weekend. Saturday I got everything mowed and edged (see Saturday evening's post HERE).
Sunday I went back out and worked in the garden.
I had an audience of course...the neighborhood cows...I gave them some grass clippings, they were happy.
Above is the garden before.
The storms last week played havoc with a few of the raised bed covers, and the rains made the weeds and grass grow. Sigh...but I borrowed 2nd Family's push lawnmower and mowed...then edged around the beds, then started pulling weeds that had grown back in the beds.
And above is the end result of the garden after.
I still had a few weeds to pull when I took this picture but it's all done. Next is putting down weedblock of some sort...cardboard is ideal but I'm not sure I have time to gather up that much. We might have to do the cloth again and put down deeper mulch than last time. We are running out of time to get things up and running in the garden and there is so much else to do.
I also cleaned up the front and put some landscape timbers down so we can get some flowers (marigolds?) and maybe herbs planted.
It was another breezy day with the windows open...though I can neither confirm nor deny that a nap may or may not taken place here...
|Pasta with ground beef and spinach|
And when I came home, it was this pasta dish that 2nd Man made up. Spinach, ground beef, mushrooms and onions. It was a great way to end a great weekend.
I didn't get to the porch but that's OK because I realized I can do that on a rainy day, or a hot day, since it's deep to be protected from the rain and shady to be much cooler than outside. So there is time for that later. For now I have to focus on the yard.
Hope you had a great weekend!
