I fought the ice and began removing the sod about a week ago. I brought my husband and kids to help this week. We are removing the grass one clump at a time, as the local rental place isn't willing to rent out the sod cutter just yet (too wet, they say). I hope to have some plants in just in time for the May sale. Still a long way to go, but I'm very excited!
Here's my beloved husband helping me out:
Husband kids hauling the removed grass to compost. We were resourceful, and used my husband's ice fishing sled.
My favorite way to be: dirt covered.
Home and the muddy boots come off right away.
If you would like to learn more about me I have a graden blog: I Love My Garden. You can also reach me via e-mail at email@example.com. I'll be back later this week to share some pictures of the hypertufa I've been working on.
