That's good, Kat! Wonderful discoveries like this lead to more success, so soon I expect you'll be out there swimming laps while Morgan plays. :)

I've pulled the lemon balm that ran wild outside my back door. It's nice to again see the bricks I laid down several years ago. I need to do more of that work, there's a stack of bricks on the porch waiting to extend that hidden part of the patio. I'll use the string trimmer to clear the rest of the grass off of the surface, and then use vinegar to keep the grass from growing back. Spray the green shoots enough and the roots finally run out of energy and it dies.

I'm tossing the plants and the dirt (and seeds) I swept up on the part of the yard above the creek. It helps to have good ground cover back there to prevent erosion. Lemon balm can grow wild and help hold down the bank.
