Pulling weeds


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

Got up and went out to water. Weather report says there is a slight chance again for rain today and tomorrow but I’ll believe it when I see it. Mowing is certainly on the agenda sometime soon. It’s finally time to take the blade height down low. That should mean less mowing required. I also […]

I was really tired this morning so I did the watering but I didn’t do that much weeding. 20 minutes per side.

It was so wet over the weekend and into the start of the week that I didn’t bother wathering yesterday. Today, however, it was supposed to be sunny and warm with little to no chance of rain. Consequently, when I got up this morning I gave the yard a drink–20 minutes per side. I also […]

Finally got the mowing done between rain storms. Phew! That was a beast of a chore. I also got some weeds pulled in front. Nowhere near all of them but every little bit counts. We still have some bald spots and while I have nothing against baldies (being one myself) it would be nice if […]

We returned from L.A. today and it was in the 90s. When the sun started to set I went out and ran the sprinkler. I also pulled some massive mushrooms. Check the photo page for the images of the shrooms and the progress on the flowers planted around the tree out front.

Dana finished the brick border around the north end front garden. Becky appears to have finished weeding the garden plot in front of the car-park in back. Dana also added ground cover stones and borders to some of the areas on the south side of the house. Dana and I also picked up yard debris […]

Removing the bandage

‍‍א סיון ה תשסח - Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

It’s been nearly 3 weeks since we planted the new seed. The growth, old and new,¬†has been great. So great, in fact, that the old growth was about a foot tall. It was time to mow. We borrowed the power mower from our neighbors across the street. It took three trash bags full of clippings […]

Pulling Weeds

Dana continued her weed pulling mission. The area around the tree in the front of the house from which we had removed the grass when we first moved in was being overtaken by weeds. We want to put in a border and fill that area with mulch but we needed to get rid of the […]

Dana came home home midday to do some watering. She also pulled enough weeds that her hands were shaking. Weed-pulling is hard work!
