Yeah, this yard didn't seem huge when we bought the house almost ten years ago. But then my husband got attacked by a nest full of hornets in the hedge and had such a severe reaction he almost died. So how he does almost no yard work, and what he does do is at daybreak. In other words, I'm on my own. We hire a guy to do lawn (ha-ha, really just mowed weeds and crab grass) and hedges. But the flower beds, herb garden (my favorite) and two vegetable patches are mine and mine alone. The weeds ... well, we mainly co-exist. I used to try to grown a variety of vegetables, but have taken it down to just a few tomato and pepper plants and a small greens patch that I can get two harvests from (I suspect if I was more energetic I could get three). I keep saying our next home will be an apartment. NO YARD, no garden.
