The week was spent on the side yards, and there has been a little bit of progress there. The gingers are much neater now, the grass is trimmed and I've picked up most of the rubbish along the other side with the ferns. All this in just about 20 minutes a day. Occasionally I miss a day and do a little extra the next day, but I really don't think I've spent more than what would amount to 15 or 20 minutes per day. What you can do with those few extra minutes! Wow.
I didn't completely finish the tasks of removing the fishtail fern and bunny pen. The pen will be removed soon, when I have a bit more time on the weekend. Then I'll be able to trim the mess behind the pen and neaten it up as well.
