The Yard

Pulling weeds

Mowing

‍‍ג אלול ה תשסט - Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Did the mowing this morning–front and back. Also pulled some weeds. Fortunately, the weed barrier out back is keeping the weeds away. A few grew just outside the barrier so I pulled those but no more forest of weeds!

I decided this weekend the yard needed some attention. First and foremost I felt like the car-park out back had been taken over by weeds and needed rescue. I went out this morning and started pulling. After 2 hours in the roughly six square feet I had cleared all of it and gotten it bagged. […]

I pulled some more weeds and did a little bit of directed watering on the new flowers planted yesterday. Randy, my father-in-law, was nice enough to mow our lawn and to work on the edges of the grass against the walkways in the front of the house. He was out there working with a manual trimmer […]

Kelli and Will came over to dig in our dirt. In honor of Dana’s birthday, they pulled a bunch of lingering weeds from the patch just in front of the house and planted a number of perennials. They also were kind enough to put the plant I received as a gift into the ground. It’s […]

Watering

‍‍כז סיון ה תשסט - Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Got up this morning and did the morning watering. I also took the yard waste from the front out to the trash and found that someone had dumped a bunch of branches in our car-park. They didn’t even have the courtesy to cut them down into small enough pieces that the garbage men would be […]

The rain streak might have finally broken. It didn’t appear as though the yard got much rain this past day or two so I decided to water this morning. 20 minutes per side. I also did a tiny bit more rose bush trimming and pulled some weeds and shrooms. Looks like a little bit of […]

Finally tackled the backyard. Got the jungle mowed down to a more reasonable height. I also pulled a bunch of weeds and did some serious prunning of the 4th of July Roses along the garage. Despite my cuts from the thorns it was totally worth it. It looks so much better. I also got the […]

Watering

‍‍יט סיון ה תשסט - Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

Even though there were supposed to be thunderstorms yesterday, all we got was a 20 second drizzle around 4:30. As a result, I was out again this morning with the morning watering. I also did some weed pulling, especially around the silver maple along the street. 20 minutes per side of watering.

Weeding

‍‍טו סיון ה תשסט - Saturday, June 6th, 2009

Decided to continue the epic struggle against the infestuous weeds in the flower beds in the front of the house. I manages to make it from where I stopped yesterday all the way to the corner of the property right at the edge of the irises. I filled another large trash bag and I would […]

‍‍יד סיון ה תשסט - Friday, June 5th, 2009

After mowing I ran some errands and when I returned I decided to pull some weeds. The peonies and roses and irises were being chocked out by the massive weed-growth. I cleared most of the weeds from the walk to the north along the front of the house but I ran out of steam just […]
