Susan spent day two gardening in the front yard. She learned a few things from day one so she put on her Burberry rain boots then made the entire family come out to assist.
The Burberry rain boots are really fantastic for slogging around in mud and dog sh*t but utilizing family labor is really fantastic for doing all the stuff that hurts Susan's back.

Susan's next door neighbor came over and traded some yellow buttercups for unearthed sea grass, her up the block neighbor contributed sunflower plants. Beetles and slugs hid in the grass, birds pulled worms out of the dirt and Susan let her family do all the hard work.

Sounds like an excellent day all around. Watch out. If you're not carefully, you'll become a gardener.

Contributions from the neighbors can only mean one thing, your yard looks like mine and it needs help.

Good on you for getting someone else to do the work.

I was going to make a terrible comment yesterday about manual labor not being my thing, that's why I hire Manuel to do it. But then I thought that might sound bad, so I didn't.
