At the end of last summer, my lawn was a brown patch of drought parched straw.
Carefully watching the weather to maximize free water, overseeding with drought tolerant and heat tolerant grass, and adjusting the limited amount of water we're legally allowed to put on it...the lawn is making a bit of a comeback here in the middle of April.
The dandelion patrol has done some great things to limit those weeds but there's still quite a few mixed in with the grass but the war continues on that front.
I would be nice if my neighbors would take care of their weeds, too, since that's where the majority of the seeds come from.
I had my first session of deadheading the roses this weekend.
After, the front yard bushes look much cleaner.
Our first vegetable harvest were these onions with came from a recycled piece of an onion in the fridge (more on that later in the season).
I used them to make this delicious penne dish...
and this asparagus ham soup. You can find those recipes on our sister blog, Sunday Sauce.
