ftr,

my favorite sport is baseball

also, set up a fucking sweet badminton net in the yard for the kiddos to play

they’re getting good!

I have quite a few snakes hanging around my yard. All appear to be garter snakes - so not too worried. Although the two most recent ones I saw scared the crap out of me. One slithered out from underneath a large mushroom I was throwing out and the other came out from a dead tree stump as I was mowing!

My veggie garden goal was replaced by a fence project.

I did have a pleasant surprise of learning that I have tigerlilys by my bushes. Last year they weren’t in bloom when I bought my house.


#23

Some of my lilies and potted flowers right now.
Trying again to grow Sunflowers but nothing yet. Will keep you posted. And Grizz waiting patiently to go outside.


#24

I can see getting into croquet with my kids. We have a great backyard for it. Yes, I might have less melanin than you at the moment.


#25

Good pup, Grizz. What a cutie!!


#26

i can’t see myself EVER playing croquet

and that’s not snobbery…that game is just not fun nor challenging at all.

but your kids are younger right?

also,

TRAMPOLINE. that’s a workout and when your’e a kid you don’t understand or know that it’s a workout.

My in-laws got us a killer trampoline a few months back. I made the mistake of jumping on it. At my age when you stop jumping, you don’t really stop jumping.


#28

There was a time you could have called me a hoe and it would have been a bit accurate.

Also, I’ve killed fake plants before.


#29

do you pee yourself too?


#30

Been known to.


#31

Occasionally or just while on the trampoline?


#32

while on the tramp


#33

No but if someone makes me laugh too hard there could be trouble.


#34

Hot temps, deer attacks, and infrequent waterings made this a bad garden year.

The only thing thriving at the moment are habanero peppers. I made the mistake of preparing hot sauce without gloves and my left hand felt like it had gonorrhea. I’ll probably switch back to serranos/jalapenos next year.

That being typed, this was a decent year for our peach tree.


#35

I love habaneros. Wish we could grow them. It’s hatch chile season around here. Can’t get enough of them.


#36

And “deer attacks” made me laugh.


#37

I enjoyed Ely’s hand gonorrhea.


#38

First year in our new place and finally have a greenhouse…


#39

Got an old apple tree as well which is looking productive…

I’ve kept an indoor plant alive for nearly 3 years. So…
