too much yard work

Good morning.
It's been a busy couple of days. Trimmed 4 bushes and 2 trees. Guess I still have too much yard work to do.   :-)
Filled 8 bags with trimmings and leaves bundled up 2 groups of branches, and 2 piles of broken down boxes from stuff we've bought. Wanted to get this done as today is bulk pick-up day. Twice a month they have bulk pick-up. That's the only time you can put out stuff that doesn't fit in your trash cans.
Sorry for the dark pics, but took these early this morning.

The dark area underneath this bush is where the branches had grown so long they covered the ground (kinda like the neighbors bush next to it) and the access panel for the drip irrigation system. I'll need to add some fresh stones around the bush. And I have plenty in the back yard that will soon be torn out so I might as well use some of them.
We have 2 trees in the front yard and one in the back.
We also bought a small chest freezer so we can take advantage of sales and stock up. Especially turkeys when they go on sale for Thanksgiving.
Went to one of the area farmers market on Sunday and was greatly disappointed. Only about 12 booths and just one of veggies.  I did get some very tasty jerky though. We'll try another market next Saturday. That one sounds like it'll be bigger. But it's only on the 1st and 3rd Sat. of the month.
Well that's it for now.

  1. Sounds like a lot of the places here. We have 2 farmers markets open on the 2nd Saturday. 1 on the first Saturday. One open in 3 different places Tues, Thurs, and Saturday. Some places 2 or 3 hours away are open different days. And some flea markets are only once a month. Breaks it up!

    I'm really surprised you weren't thinking more like 'pfft, this is nothing', when you think about all the plant sales and whatnot.

    Have a blessed week!
