Weekend Work

We actually got some things accomplished this weekend. It was nice being outside with the beautiful weather we had.

I cleared a lot of garbage from our yard so we could mow a bigger area. We have so much trash back there. It was a dumping ground evidently. But that is what farmers do. My dad has a few dump areas on his property. I need to rent a dumpster just to get rid if it all. My neighbor told me there is two trucks in the pond! When the water was lower last summer you could see the top of one of them.

Anyway. I digress.

While cleaning up the garbage I saw lots of bugs. Bugs of all shapes and sizes. Especially a lot of ants. Those ants are now making their way into my house (which could be a whole separate post).

I also saw lots of these.

The boys had a great time with them and then let them go. I'd rather have snakes than mice quite honestly. So I'm okay with them.

I also saw a creature that I didn't recognize that came out of a wood pile. It looked like this but smaller.

I had to google it to discover we have weasels living in our backyard. They were actually kind of cute. I don't mind them back there because they are keeping the bunny population down. But if we ever want to keep chickens they will have to go.

Before we did our big mow I picked all the edible asparagus that was growing back there.

It was delicious.

We also trimmed up a few trees in the front yard. One tree we might have trimmed too excessively. I will have to take a picture and post asking your opinion.

What about you guys? Did you have a productive weekend or just sit back and enjoy the weather?
