As per usual it was a good weekend.  We broke with tradition and spent most of Saturday weeding our front garden beds.  On the rare occasion that we get outside, it’s usually on a Sunday afternoon, but for some reason this weekend it was Saturday.  I think part of it was the weather – it was just beautiful, about 19 degrees C and sunny.  Another part of it was that I just couldn’t live with the weeds any longer.  When they’re bigger than the plants, you know you have to do something.

Anyhow, I spent probably five hours out there, and C spent about two, so we got a fair bit done.  After we were over weeding, C sprayed the recalcitrant weeds (mostly couch grass runners that had got into the garden beds) and I fertilised various plants with Miracle Gro.  Should be interesting to see if it makes a difference.  I then outdid myself by going inside and cooking up a magnificent roast lamb dinner, complete with vegies.  Damn it was good!  There’s lots of lamb left over, so I can see what we’re going to be eating for the next few days.

We had great intentions of going to Bunnings and Landsdale Plants today, but as it turned out I was sore from all the unprecedented hard work yesterday.  C is calling me Gerry (as in, geriatric) and teasing me about being so unfit.  It’d be funny if it wasn’t true.  Still, it’s worth it, the garden looks so much less disreputable.  Now all we need to do is remove the 12 foot dead pine from the front of the house (I wish I was joking, but I’m not).
