Most of my weekends this summer have been spent trying to get a handle on my much overgrown yard. Saturdays and a good part of Sundays have found me in a never ending battle of man -vs- nature.
I tell you, it's not easy juggling work and hobbies and life in general, but I managed to get a few things accomplished. We (my lovely wife, Dellis and I) managed to trim and shape up what had gotten a bit out of hand.
I've also added to the infrastructure with a nifty drip irrigation system and extensions to the bridge that extend to the back door.
We might also get the pond's eco-system balanced out to the point where we're not condemning goldfish to a murky death.
Sure, the smart money is always on nature (I need to sleep sometimes) but I think I've made a pretty good showing the last couple of months.
I also believe that the seasons are on my side. Things grow slower in the winter.
Yo, trees, you hear that? We'll finish this in December.
