Garden Work

I’ve been digging, digging a lot. I’m in the process of digging up sod in a smallish area next to the garage. I hate having to pull out the push mower just for this one area, so I’m removing the sod and going to plant wildflower seeds. That has been a hard enough job, but I also have to move three pussy willow plants that keep getting eaten by deer, rabbits and they get hammered by the snow sliding off the roof. So, to move those willows to where I want them, I needed to remove two Rose bushes, I don’t care for them in that location and there is already a rose hedge. Removing the roses was a real trick, I had to use a tow strap and the lawn tractor to pull the fuckers out.
Anyway, I have a little more that half the sod dug up and two of the willows (not sure yet where to place the third one) transplanted. I’m fucking beat!
