let's here it for the hillside people
FINALLY! We are a special breed, so it is fitting that we have our own forum. All gardening is hard work, but unless you have stood on a hillside for hours, bent over, legs stretched, knees locked, butt up, back broke, you don't have a clue. I should buy stock in an ibuprofin company. This year has been very hard, with the hot spells that we had. I just couldn't do it. So now, I am paying the price. I have weeds that are now trees and creeping roses that attack, when you go near them. What a mess! I really need to simplify that entire front hillside. If you are from Pittsburgh, you all know what hillside gardening is really like. It is like gardening on a alpine slope, you try to stand erect, but gravity just won't allow it. Next year I'm getting out there early and remulching every inch!
