You couldn't drag me out of the yard in the spring. That's the way of things when you suffer through months-long winters. Every little excuse to be outside is a good one, in the springtime. Take a picture of the first crocus? Of course, and twenty of them, for good measure. Digging up 60 feet of yard for new garden? Where do I sign up?
But it's August now. I have bean plants that need to be pulled. In fact, they beg me to pull them whenever I am out back. After the Squash Vine Borer Battle of July 2017, I'm worn out. Now that I have reasons to be outside, the excuses get easier to give in to. So my list grows.
Pull the needed bean plants.
Dig up N garden.
Dig up cut potatoes.
