ry working in the garden
there are more dandelions than grass in our backyard
found lemon basil growing!
used it in a pasta dish last week
it smells so lovely
bright and lemony
piles and piles of weeds heap up
a tree that was planted maybe a couple of years ago
we have no idea what kind of tree it is
my friend M said it might be peach
i have a feeling its apple
and now how to get rid of bushes
the monster bushes
they have been here 20 years
according to my neighbor C
here is what we tried first
we cut off all the smaller branches to get to the stump
ry started to dig around the stump
then our neighbor M leant us his power saw
A LOT of sawing at the root
tried wiggling it free
ry and M work together to try to rip it out
but it took so long!
then our friend C came to the rescue
she saw us trying to rip out the bushes and she came over and said she had a better way
i was not able to get a picture and i wish i did
her husband took some chains and wrapped it around the roots and hooked it up to his truck
and he yanked em out!
it was pretty cool
look at all the dirt the roots held onto
it is still a mess but at least the roots are out!
thank you to our neighbors that helped with lending us their trashcans and their advice!
