Gettin’ Blown Out

21 Nov

This was a busy weekend, it started by facing a big challenge, the leaves that were accumulating in our backyard. Our previous house had a yard that was about the size of our deck and a lawn about the 3×20. There was raking to be done but it was chump change compared to what we have to deal with now.
Our friend Derek once again came through with the power equipment and let us borrow his backpack blower to help the cause. We took an absolutely ridiculous picture to illustrate its use.

It did help but it was still a huge battle. We didn’t even touch the front or side yards yet and we already filled 34 bags of leaves. The backyard is already ready for another once over as well.
What was to be our morning project went until it was dark out, we did save a few trips back and forth though…
