So, here I am, waterlogged. I truly had believed that I had no garden projects this year. That was before I went out this spring and saw that a large area of grass had turned to weed grasses since last year. Quack grass, bent grass, nutsedge... all had invaded the area and overtaken my Kentucky Blue.
My first thought was to just kill it all and resod. Then I looked at the mess in the yards on either side of me and figured it was a losing battle. One neighbor has never used any fertilizer or weed killer since he moved in about 15 years ago. The other house has a single woman living in it who does not do yard work and does not hire anyone to do it. Her ex, or whatever he is, shows up every few weeks to cut the front lawn, but not the back. I could put in new sod and just replay the invasion all over again.
So, after several weeks I decided this week to just cover up the grass and put in a new bed.
So, I set out yesterday to re-landscape the area. Ugh. It was nearly 80 degrees F when I came inside. I was beat, but although not done, I have this new planting area.
So, this week in the garden. Green. Lots of green. This is the view from the bridge:
Have a great holiday weekend.
