Reason #21,758 Why Cyclists

and Yards Just Don't Mix in Minnesota where somehow we believe houses should be surrounded by grass...gotta rethink that fer God's sake....

A House Haiku (housku??)
seven weed-filled bags
work put-off for months while I
toured, traveled and played
What's in these......was all here...

...but I doubt there's much hope for this.

X Bunny said...

wow--your yard looks pretty spiffy in picture #2!

lawns and snow are a tough mix in my book

the old bag said...

Sascha -- believe me, I've considered it...right now I'm considering native plantings.

oV -- ...but not quite the quality stuff.

xB -- yeah, it gets old, esp. after seeing homes with plain ol' woods and rocks surrounding them. This lawn stuff is for the birds.

Alittle seed and some fertilizer and you'll be back in business just in time for the snow to fly.

Sounds like Oregon was worth it. I enjoyed it there last year when camping.

When does schol start for you? We start next Wednesday and I'M NOT READY!!!!!!!!!

Shawn -- Thanks! I just entered my request at the library!

Jeff -- too soon, but not as soon as you. I'm in spotty training sessions throughout August, but the real start is the 28th...kids the day after Labor Day.

...in time for the snow to fly...#@%!!
