I've been working on the back yard a little at a time. I start in the morning when it is still cool outside and work till I get too hot. First I had to clean up all the garbage left around the back yard by the former owners.
|You cant see it well and your probably thankful for that but this is a half a bag of rotting larvae infested bird seed left out in the back yard near the house. Great way to attract rodents and bugs to your house don't ya think?|
After getting rid of the garbage it was time to get rid of the weeds ...as you can see some of them were higher then the fence. I actually had to stop after the first couple of minutes to hunt down which box had the leather work gloves. There were weeds with stickers on them growing everywhere.
The black drip hose was already there and once I figured out how to hook it up I put it into use. I also found several spray nozzles and a sprinkler in the mass of weeds. Nothing like some free lawn care supplies.
Now I don't really want the garden up next to the house but since the space is already here and I don't have any where else prepared I figured it was a good start. I'll have some nice fresh veggies while I set up a more permanent home.
