Getting there...

Slow but steady, right? That's what my momma always..... Ehh. Who am I kidding? I'm lazy as the day is long. I still have the bathroom half finished.

In other news - the potted vegetable garden has been moved to the ground and is growing like crazy! (pictures to come) We just got back from a lovely trip to Mississippi to see the relatives, so we are still getting caught up on household chores too.

I think our next huge project will be the yard. I can not even FATHOM another summer of weeding and spraying and cutting and trimming. ACK. So Dave and I decided to rip up all the flower beds and small bushes, till the ground, and either lay seed or sod. The goal is to be able to mow 95% of the yard. Most of these flower beds have not produced any actual flowers in about 2 years (since we moved in) that is, if you don't count the dandelions and flowering weeds. So hopefully we can get that project going this weekend. Dave will need to rip the box hedges out with his truck... stay tuned for those pictures!!

This is so funny. You want to get rid off your flower beds/bushes, I want(ed) to get rid off our front lawn. And all for the same reason: make it more maintenance-friendly.

My husband hates mowing (and I cannot deal with our push-mower) and the dandelions were just too much and too difficult to get out of the lawn. We still have dandelions in the flower beds, but they are so much easier to deal with. At least for me.

Hopefully, your lawn will be different and give you the gardening peace you're aiming for.
