We had our own little Extreme Makeover: Home Edition going on this weekend! My mom (nearly a master gardener) came up to help me deal with my yard. We bought the house last August, so it's been fun seeing what's already planted, but it was time to get it together. My non-grass areas were probably 80% weeds! We filled our entire yard waste bin (which is twice the size of my garbage can), then filled an entire storage tub, two boxes and a paper bag with even more! We spent two days doing major gardening, and finishing up some painting projects. I did even more weeding today, and planted some lettuce in the backyard.
I'm really sore. But it was worth it!!! And I was down 6 pounds at my weigh-in!!!! Gardening burns a lot of calories :)
