Recommended Posts

It has to be a personal hobby or it just wont get done. I actually enjoy it and have future plans.

What we envision and just like our cars, our vision is different then others.

I sure could use Fabio assistance, seems like just to busy to visit my house.

Here we have a little bit more water than West Texas and we get to irrigate enough to keep things green.

 

When I was a kid we lived in Phoenix, and my parents were always worried about the water bill so the lawn was usually half dead.

 

I’ve been out there cleaning up the junkyard so you’re not gonna get to see photographs of the full gory details.

Here at my current home. Grass and a view.

Love the Background, reminds me of the Sandia Mountains when I lived in New Mexico, And the lawn is much nicer and low maintenance then anything I can grow.

Low maintenance is a goal worth working for. Leaves more time to work on our old cars  :)

as for the garden...am eating squash and cucumbers already....zucchini seems to be my main disappointment

Different zones,  I have some plants including cucumber just sitting and not growing. I did plant several more seeds today .... several peppers and tomatoes, cantaloupe blooming but no fruit yet.

 

I dug and prepared the patch today in the back 40 for asparagus, watermelon, cucumbers and got them planted in the ground ... way over planted but see what survives and grows.

Suppose to be a lot of rain coming up, thought a perfect time to plant the young plants and seeds today.

nice, very serene looking area......as for the garden...am eating squash and cucumbers already....zucchini seems to be my main disappointment..no pollination it appears.;;;;;


We live in the zucchini capital of the world, evidently, because it was literally impossible to go to a restaurant without being served zucchini.

 

Now I could understand this at a Greek or Mediterranean or Armenian restaurant, but here if you go to a Chinese restaurant or a Mexican restaurant it is quite possible to be served zucchini.


They put it in the albondigas.

 

I know you’d love the Szechuan shrimp with lobster sauce and zucchini.

This a picture of one of our “rock” gardens. Hope it counts.  
I am done for the day and we just put steaks on the wood fired grill. 
My friends always say we are crazy for all of our lawn and outside projects. I tell them it’s cheaper than having a therapist.

We used to have a luau every two years which all the dodge people were invited. Merle and Mark usually attended. We now moved to every 4 years. This is the year of our luau. We are still tentatively planning it but stay tuned.
