While having four city lots for a garden is wonderful in June and July, it is a lot of work when it comes to fall cleanup. Especially when the kids are all in school with after school events… or stuck at home recovering from a virus. And, in order to get some sleep before my alarm goes off at 12:30 (yes, that is A.M.), I try to leave at 4:30. That means there is only so much that can get done. Although, we managed to get quite a bit pulled up.
The picnic table area had some of those volunteer trees growing, so I chopped them down and threw them in the back of the truck. I also threw in some of the stuff we had pulled previously. It filled up the truck bed pretty quickly.
Martha and Kaitlyn started picking the gourds and pulling up the vines. When I filled the truck up, I headed over to help.
We managed to get quite a bit done, but there is still plenty to do. Of course, there is always something to do in the garden!
And there is always something to look at, too.
Hopefully, next time we will get even more done!
