Weeds. You pull them and you spray to prevent more. They sprout anyway, mocking your hard work. And then you pull them again. Victory (temporarily, at least)! And so the cycle continues all summer long.
My fingers are sore nubs from pulling so many weeds. I pushed the reel mower around today too (love that whirring!). Ben planted a few tomato and pepper plants.
Now we're getting ready to grill some turkey burgers and relax. Good eats and a great-looking yard. Not bad for a Sunday.
