Busting sod

1. Pulling up sod is not fun.  This little bed in the front yard is going to take a lot longer than expected!  And I have a feeling I am going to be recruiting my pickup-owning friends to haul some soil and decomposed granite; hauling in 10-gallon bags is not going to do the trick.

2.  I have to teach a bunch of 4-year olds about water tomorrow.  Eep!

3.  I am making this fish recipe for dinner tonight.  Mmmm.

    I concur. Pulling up grass ought to be one of Dante’s hells. My hubby and I have been preparing a bed in our backyard for about 2 weeks now. He has been scraping it up with a shovel (really hard work) while I have been on my keister pulling out the St. Augustine runners. I have also found some invading Bermuda grass, which has me a bit frightened that it will survive the dirt and mulch we are putting on top.
    Good luck and happy sod busting!

    Oh! I meant to say, we had dirt delivered from Geo Growers and that has been soooo worth it!
