I love my messy little chunk of earth.
Really? You should see this place. Junk tossed into the woods. Old tires and tarps, Huge cement slabs. I will never get it cleaned. We're in our sixties. Most of what I mow is uneven and bumpy.
I just cleaned up where a twg pile was and underneath found broken glass. I had to clean that up and dumped it in an area to be buriend.
So I've defined a perimeter and will work in that. The woods will still be woods.
This I dug a trench next to and buried it.
This I plan to paint and turn into yard art. I'd like to do the same with all the tires but can't figure out how to cut them in half.
This other mess is outside the perimeter so will stay there.
This guy was rescued and turned into lawn decoration I'm working on painting him green and adding chicken wire around his legs so Ivy can grow up. He has some holes stuffed with moss too.
