Garden Restoration

Perhaps you remember that last fall, pre-Pax, we cleared out our garden and attempted to plant some herbs and a lemon tree. Well, since Pax, I have soooooooooooo slacked on the yard, leaving it to it's own devices.

Suffice it to say, this Saturday, we pulled up 6 foot tall dandelions for hours and hours. We pulled the weeds, tilled the earth, drank margaritas, added earthworm shite to the soil, planted some flowers, cut down a bush, pruned a tree, had a BBQ and spent time with friends. Here are a few photos. I didn't realize I was on the B/W setting until half-way through the day.

Sweet!

Land rehab has began at our house as well, and Amanda and Schaeffer are talking vegetable garden. :-)

As for me, I am trying to win the neighborhood record for the yard representing the most impressive array of varying species of grass... and clover... and wild flowers... but all in very heathy and tasteful way of course.

My heighbors' perfect st. augustine yards are nice I suppose, but I find they lack a certain texture and depth... and sense of reality. :-)

that looks really nice, man...

it makes me pine after a bit of earth which i could tend with such care. when i was a kid and had to spend hours out in the yard pulling weeds and spreading mulch i hated it, but now i remember those times as truly enjoyable (as long as it wasn't a million degrees outside.) who would have thought?

Your climate is way ahead of ours. We're fluctuating wildly. Last week we had one day that was 80 degrees. Today the high was 39, and it is now snowing. Crazy...
