Backyard update, you know you’re excited! I finally got around to finishing the backyard landscaping. All woodchipped and planted up. Took a truck-load of yard waste (presumably a couple years-worth of leaves and sticks, plus this summer’s grass clippings) to the landfill on Friday. Finished seeding the last remnant swaths of dirt a couple days ago and the first lawn sprouts are starting to poke through already. The peach tree is full of almost-ripe peaches, though Taylor and Parko have been thinning the crop, standing on hind legs to work over the lower branches.
