We never go in this part of the yard. Honestly, I think we forgot it belongs to us. It’s a useless alley hardly large enough to hold a garbage bin, but that’s exactly what we’re going to put in it: our three carts will have a new home here once we’re done weeding and mulching. The weeds got a bit out of hand – foliage grows fast in Washington! Fortunately, they are easy to pull out.
20 minutes of weeding, a trip to Home Depot and 4 bags of mulch later:
We pulled out the rest of the weeds a few days later. Minutes after taking this pic, it began to rain (hard).
Yay, rain! Now we can go inside!! (This is one of the things I love about living in Washington.)
