I have gardened before, but not for a while, since this year my garden is a mess, due to nearby construction, & it would have been a waste of time to do much in it. BUT my neighbor has a bunch of ivy that needed to go.
Soooooo out I went with the trusty wheelbarrow, spade, cutters, etc. Not a bad day for it and after 2 hours, the ivy was GONE. This burns an amazing number of calories, it turns out! I never knew how many until I started Sparkpeople.
Now my neighbor can Roundup the remaining roots which I could not dislodge...and next week when they are dead, I will hoe them up and prepare the ground for grass seed. Woo hoo and variety of exercise too! I feel every muscle of my midsection and then some, but it is a GOOD tired!
