Clean up

I took a long weekend to catch up around the house. Vacuuming, dusting, organizing, yard work, etc. The end result is so satisfying.

First, the front walkway. About a week ago, I caved and sanctioned Eric to take some RoundUp to the weeds. We had tried managing them by hand but it's nearly impossible to get the root out when it's coming up between the bricks.

We also tackled removing the old grass reeds so that the new pretty growth could be seen better. The upside is it looks great!


The downside is the grass is sharp and my arms are all cut up.


And, one quick inside the house thing - we purchased shelves and Tupperware bins for the basement and organized that.






Last, but not least, a new bloom for you:

I wonder how one sells veggies at the Farmer's Market

I'm not kidding.

Last Thursday I went out to the garden and picked anything worth harvesting - some more squash, beans, peppers, jalapeƱos. I used some of them for dinner that evening. The rest I set aside to store.

Then we went out of town for the weekend. Today I walked out to the garden and immediately retreated to get a basket and my shears.

I ended up harvesting about 1 lb of beans, 3 peppers, a dozen red and white onions, 2 squash, and a dozen jalapeƱos.


Dinner anyone?
