Last Friday, my juicer came! Woo-hoo! Can't wait to make some carrot juice! :)
And on Saturday, Brandon and two men in our ward came over who are starting a landscaping business, and started getting to work on getting the area ready that will become my garden! :) Most of the day was grinding the tree stumps from the pine trees we cut down in 2006, and removing all the rocks the previous owners had placed around the trees. WHY anyone would put a bunch of rocks in the middle of the yard is beyond me! Can't exactly grow my garden in all those rocks! We figured that was the best place to have the garden since we didn't want to tear up nice grass. That area is already grass-less and ugly, so might as well put it to good use! I'm sure the rocks looked nice at first when first put down, but they start to look awful as the years go by, plus it makes it hard to plant grass or other things there. Next time we buy a house. . .we'll be skipping houses with rocks in the yard. Unless the owners trying to sell have them removed at their own expense because we will not be dealing with rock removal EVER again! Moving rocks is a huge nightmare. . . .we've even had to remove rocks from the flower bed area in the front. That's even odder than the middle of the back yard! In a flower bed? How do you expect to grow flowers if you put a bunch of rocks there? The people here before us did NOT have my tastes at all! Including all the ugly stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, silver colored light fixtures throughout the house, along with matching doorknobs! Ugh! Silver looks so cold looking. . . Go gold color! . . . Anyway, I'll post before, during and after pics of the back yard later when the job is all done!
Falf way through our school year
