Back in the day, late late 50's and 60's we used to have to help with the yard work. My parents would give us each a paper grocery sack and send us out to the front lawn to pull weeds. For every weed with a root we'd earn a penny. I can't imagine any kid doing that now. Frankie's eyes would roll so far back in her head they'd get stuck there!
This is what reminded me of it. Today the weather was nice so I went out back. I'm trying to do 15 minutes in the yard pulling weeds everyday. That might not seem like a lot but makes me do it everyday. If I said an hour I'd never do it. I did the minimum plus. I need to get ahead so we don't need a garden intervention like last year.
