I spent about 20 minutes in my backyard trying to decide where to put my square foot garden . . . I don't have a large backyard and every time I've attempted to grow something it has been a dismal disaster, but I'm going to try again.
Then I walked around to the front yard.
That tree has got to go.
The Palm tree might live to see another day, but that yellow grass thingy . . . I hated it the moment I saw the house.
Thankfully my neighbor Linda was on hand to help me figure out a plan.
- Me: Well, I was thinking I would hire a tree service to get rid of that tree and the grass thing because I hate them both
Linda: Honey there's no need to to that! Get yourself a pair of ....umm...long clippers or a saw and saw that thing down. (Grabs branch and twists) Matter of fact, this thing is half-dead anyway so it should come down easy.
Me: Umm...I don't have a green thumb, so I don't know if I should do this.
Linda: Well, in this case, you're the perfect person for it. You're trying to kill the tree and if you're as bad as you say, this is right up your alley.
Me: You have a point. . .and I have a hacksaw. . .
Linda: Ring my doorbell if you need anything.
So here's what I accomplished in one hour:
Beginning: See Above
30 minute Mark:
Done (45 Minute Mark):
I left three weeds and a stump, but I'll get rid of those before the trash get here in the morning.
Now I'm pricing the garden . . . This is soooo much fun!
