We have found that it is extremely difficult to be productive when the temperature causes the need for jackets, and blankets. So far I have planted a blueberry... weeded a quarter of the yard, and have waged war against the bamboo that is slowly trying to take over the entire yard.
So instead of the usual college break check list I have a unique one: Shovel...check. Board games and cards to play with my boys....double check. New plants to put in...check. Plenty of water...check. Blistered hands...check. A nice back rub after pulling weeds, and digging up bamboo....quadruple check!
I hope everyone has a wonderful break, and enjoys it in a way that makes them happy! I'm glad our yard will be getting better soon!
