Well, ya'al can pull weeds if you want, but I want to sit on the deck with a tall glass of sweet tea....right after I've sat on VE's porch with another glass of sweet tea! I drink a LOT of sweet tea! Big Grin
Then it would be off to Muddy's to wander around her yard and pet Rascal as we walked! Big Grin

See, I have itinerary all worked out!

OMGosh! Thank you all so much! And yes, please come & pull weeds! I will make the sweet tea!

SSTR we have 10 acres total. 2 1/2 are pasture. And I put a garden anywhere I can! DH hates to see me walking around with a tape measure!

How do you manage to keep everything watered? However you do it, they are just beautiful!

SSTR Irrigation - the best thing I ever did. And we have a deep well. AND..DH is a plumber! So we did it ourselves.

When I first started planting we were filling barrels from a nearby pond to keep stuff living. It's a blessing now to just cut the irrigation on.

Well, it's a habit! Caught myself the other day starting to pull a weed in the landscaping in front of a business. I just can't stand to see a big weed poking up like that one was!

Yes they are gorgeous! One day DH will put in irrigation so I won't have to lug hoses around.

Pattie, I love how you have your property landscaped.

Hey I wanna play with the goats too. Big Grin

Thank you so much zone9!

Irrigation is the best thing for gardens, ever! It was pretty easy to install.
