I am overwhelmed by weeds

My yard is a lot like Jurassic Park ❤

Yikes!  I have been so busy with work that I have not had much time to work in the yard this month.  Also, it turns out that my skin is very sensitive to the sun and the mosquitoes literally love my butt.

I take the proper precautions with wearing sunscreen and a sun hat and I practically cover myself from head to toe with long pants and love sleeved shirts.  Somehow my face still ends up peeling.  I cleared an entire area not so long ago and it is already overgrown by weeds.  Even just one acre is a lot to maintain and lately I have been losing at this game.

We could hire landscapers, but I would rather save money and I feel like working out in the garden is therapeutic when I actually do it.

Again, I need to just chip away at it and hopefully it will make a difference, but the weeds grow back so quickly.  Yesterday we discovered that the pigs that have been frequenting our property went on a frenzy for crane flies and cultivated the grass in front of our gate.

Living here is an adventure and every time I leave my front door I don’t know what I will see.  I signed up for this when I decided that my heart was set on having property so I will get back into the yard work flow.

Wish me luck!

    1. Great job on getting those weeds to a manageable place. We finally invested in a weed wacker this evening. I am looking forward to going back out tomorrow. Having land makes it all worth it.
      Happy Gardening!

  1. THAT is your property?!?! Oh my God! It’s gorgeous! Also, I’d never be able to keep a beautifully landscaped yard…I was not blessed with a green thumb like my grandma, mom and sister LOL Even my dad started gardening this year and is amazing at it. Me on the other hand killed a succulent. Yes, a succulent. My sister even got me a cactus because “apparently” you can’t really kill those, but I did. She said that was actually pretty impressive LOL

    1. Thank you! Yes, I feel so lucky that this property has such beautiful landscaping. It really was a nice surprise and I hope that I can maintain it. My partner and I invested in a weed whacker yesterday evening and I can tell that it will help.
      That is funny about you and the houseplants. At least it is not from lack of trying. I haven’t always had the best luck with houseplants either mostly because our cats love to knock them over or munch. Have you tried an air plant? It requires no care it is just good to put it out of reach if you have pets or children.
      Thank you for stopping by!
