I spent two days raking up all the pine needles, sticks, and debris that accumulated over the winter on the front and side yards. I have two acres of yard, so I didn't do the back yard. I was exhausted and my arms were very sore by the time I finished. It took me another afternoon to load all the piles on the "buggy" and take them away.
Over the weekend, Hubby cut the grass and then put fertilizer down on the front yard. While he was doing that, I weeded and then worked my garden squares. I planted some radishes and lettuce. I've also got some onion sets to plant as soon as I can get back outside. Some of my herbs came back from last year and are looking good. I'm looking forward to fresh veggies from the garden.
I also got my flower beds cleaned out and weeded. We still need to put fertilizer on the back yard and lime over the whole yard. I may regret it this summer if I have to cut grass several times a week. But the yard really needed fertilizer.
We got a little rain this morning, but the sun is back out now. Another beautiful day - I love this time of year.
