Yard Looks Great

My place takes a beating each winter as it is not a paved drive. Dirt and grass most of which is cleared with tractor after each storm to keep ice from forming keeps it torn up for about 3 months then 3 months to fill back in which has me re-thinking so much about this yard and plans as I age so I can do less and enjoy it more.

I need more gardens and less grass

So the plan this fall for me is to divide and conquer areas I do not need to really touch during a snowstorm and place the new gardens there as well as maybe a rock garden and a completely revamped food garden area.



The old fence will come down and some boxes repaired and moved



When you are a homeowner like me with all of this land there is always something to do but I get distracted by the beauty that surrounds me does that happen to you as well?

  1. You have a very nice one.. I think that is a good plan. I know gardening work can be hard (I say it is hard) to keep up. It is not something you set and forget for awhile but the end results and enjoyment working on it can make you forget about those things πŸ™‚

    1. Yes it is an attention grabber and so long as I can stay focused so much gets done πŸ™‚ between housework, hanging laundry outside and the garden club and library volunteering I do πŸ™‚

  2. I am beginning to view things a bit differently, too. When I retired five years ago, I built a new veg garden (the potager) to make my life easier. But these five more years of aging are nudging me toward more changes, so some of my flower gardens are being converted from annuals to perennials. I intend to enjoy them while I can, knowing that at some point the weeds may have their way. I, too, get distracted by the beauty and the sounds around me. So blessed to have a garden!

  3. Itβ€˜s always good to have a plan, even if you do get distracted! We have been watching Youtube videos of TractorTimeWithTim for tips on how to use our new tractor so we will be shovelling dirt too! πŸ˜‰

    1. Awesome πŸ™‚ I broke down and bought a new rider for the grassy spots my last new one was 35 years old and with the JD Tractor I should be able to do what I love until I am 80 πŸ™‚

Love to hear from you
