I always thought you had a green thumb because you were good at growing. Not true. You can also get it from excessive weed-pulling when you are glove-less.
Remember this lovely yard? Yep, I was living in a dream world.
Dream #1: A newly sodded yard will not produce ANY weeds EVER!
Dream #2: A new backyard will not attract any bees, hornets, or other unsightly creatures (ie - fire ants).
So between today and yesterday?
Time spent pulling weeds: 3.5 hours
Number of weeds pulled: 50 billion
Number of weeds left to pull: 999 bazillion
Percentage of lawn left to weed: 65.343212%
Showing off my green thumb? Priceless!
And I also got to show the kiddos a caterpillar which they enjoyed. And E even asked, "Can I see a snake now?"
And in other exciting news, our community pool opens on Thursday! Yippee!
