More Gardening

We've been trying to improve our yard the past few weeks by turning the sprinklers on, fertilizing, pulling weeds, etc. While it's not looking great, we finally felt the grass was growing well enough we could cut it. Since we have so little grass, we didn't feel it was worth using a gas or electric mower, so we bought a manual mower. Honestly, it is much easier to use and lighter than our old gas mower.

Here are a couple photos of it's inaugural use. (Note: In the first picture, there is a "dirt" planting bed. I was weeding that last week and it just about killed me. Well, not really, but there were some flowers that were taking over everything. The roots took over the entire bed. Hopefully, I'll get some new flowers in there this week.)
