Gardening, and other stuff!

I spent a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon tidying up the flower beds.  I still have another couple hours worth of sorting out to do in them.  I am figuring the flower beds are a three year project at this point.  Last year was spent trying to clean them out.  Which I more or less achieved; other than the flower bed to the left of the photo.  That one is still an overgrown mess; although I did manage to get at least one third of it cleaned out on Saturday. 


So this year I am going to carry on cleaning them out and adding the odd plant here and there, and hopefully by next year I can continue with the planting and just general maintenance; then after that it should be general maintenance.



Also what does this mean:



Yep these are my tools for cutting the grass, my i-pod and the keys to the lawn tractor.  Had a run down the field Saturday evening to see how the tractor was running, and its running fine.  Will have to cut the field later on this week I think.


Did you remember to put your money in the Daily Savings Club today?

Today's Money Saving Tip:

Don't waste money on gyms or sports, just get into the garden and start digging! It's great exercise and it costs nothing at all!

Read your interview on Zhu's blog - it's NOT boring. It's informative and fascinating.

If you get to be more famous, you're going to have to get a yardman and a housekeeper!!!
