One thing I'm not crazy about in our new home is that we have to do all the yard work ourselves. I thought one of the perks of renting was that we wouldn't have to do this stuff, but as it turns out, we do.
We've already established that I'm not an engineer, and I have quickly learned that I am also not a gardener. The other day, I was in the front yard trimming the hedges with the new clippers I borrowed from my parents when my neighbor walked by and said, "Here, honey, let me show you how to do that!" She then proceeded to show me the proper way to "round it out," which is exactly what I thought I was doing before she intervened.
Learn to spot the weeds, my friends, and be sure to get their roots!
