Yard work day for me. Yesterday the 'lawn' got mowed,, it's not really a 'lawn',, it's grass, weeds you know, greeen stuff.. looks OK from the road..
. I re-seeded the grass area off my deck that I spent so much time and money on last year in preparation for my big car-party.. and this grass prmply died in the 100* temps and zero rain for the following 3 weeks.. Even though I watered it daily..
So, I'm trying again.. I'd like to have at least a piece of a 'lawn' just off the deck,
Pulled weeds around the Koi-pond, sprayed roundup around all the flagstones, fences etc. Trying to get a jump on the weeds.
I've got to find and fire up the 4-stroke weed wacker and see if i can attack the fenceline.
The weather has been great, the solar panels have been making plenty of current, I might have a really , really small electric bill this month.
Had the '64 Skylark out on Wednesday it was a beautiful 80* day.. car was happy to be out of the garage!!
I'm gonna fire up the big wheel loader and go down the street , bring back a few loads of 10year old cow manure, I'm expanding the garden, adding some potatoes this year..
I built up a low spot with coal ash, and am going to top it with 12-16" of black dirt/manure, that should grow some good 'taters.
I'm afraid to plant anything, too early and there is an ugly cold front that is stalled just west of the mississippi river, they've had snow storms in Kansas city !!
I just KNOW that if i put out plants, it will snow or have a hard frost here.. FIrst week of June is close to 'safe' here.
Hey Sting!! what's the weather in S. Wisconsin/?
Gotta get back to work..
