I'm trying to get a jumpstart today.
Hadn't planned on doing anything in my garden for a couple more weeks but
sometimes plans change.
We're about to start a big home improvement project and will be having
workers here tackling the backside of our house. Before that can happen,
Myguy and I are going to cut back all the giant bushes growing up against our house
and then dig it all up with the backhoe. So... since the garden is right there too
I decided to get in there and begin cleanup.
After backing my truck up there and getting out a shovel, shears
and gloves... it was hard to know where to even start. lol
I just grabbed some vines and started pulling....
Omg. I know, I know... how could I even be surprised right?
This spring I did not do the newspaper hay mulch trick so... you can just imagine.
But ... I got a good start.
I kept thinking of this...
My friend Cora and I used to say it back and forth all the time
when either of us felt overwhelmed with something.
And then I thought of my friend Dawn who says,
"Just keep moving."
Everything was going pretty good-
I pulled and cut... and
then grabbed the mower after I found and pulled out the old tomato cages that were around
But then I started running into these:
that would be a giant ant hill.
I was doing a lot of stomping and that advice to keep
moving ... oh yeah... keep moving Leaon Mary whatever you do
do not stand still for more than a split second.
It started getting really bad so I went inside and
put on a big kettle of boiling water.
At least boiled water kills the eggs too.
I think I can get back in there now.
So... I better keep moving.
And do the next thing.
