Quick update: work and other distractions have prevented me from doing much lately but I'm catching up with the help of a local high school student.

And after today this is where we're at:

Not too bad considering this is what the garden looked like when I started:

I'm so glad it occurred to me to ask a local HS kid I know if he wanted to make a few bucks helping me weed. He's been here about 5 hours this week and he's an awesome little weeder! Turns out he used to help his grandparents weed when he was younger and he enjoys it. Who knew?!! So between the two of us, we're back on track! I might just make it before the snow flies. bounce

Thanks,  Kelejan.  I feel so fortunate to have found a garden helper.  

Today he came by and worked some more even though I couldn't be here.  He texted me some pictures but it looks even better in person.  I can actually walk all around the perimeter of the garden for the first time in 3 years.  It's hard to see because there's still a lot of growth between the last two beds, shielding the weeded area from view,  but it feels like we're over the hump at least.

There's still the outside perimeter of the fence to weed as well as some more raised beds along the side wall and in the back of the house.

Here's a different view,  looking back from what was an impenetrable thicket this morning.

After my five-week visit to England I came back to long grass and overgrown beds but I have not made such good progress as you have. the cable that I use for my lawn-mower had to be mended so that cut out a few days an then of course it rained, but now my lawn is almost under control but my main job at the moment is to deal with the literal avalanche of falling apples. Each day I pick up two buckets of apples that I have a hard time carrying back to my house to deal with.

I keep telling myself that it will end but there are still hundreds on the tree. The falling apples are getting larger and larger and I am dehydrating the largest and best ones. Then I get rid of the little ones, the green ones, the damaged ones then concentrate on drying the good ones as they are the quickest to deal with.

Next time I go away it will not be five weeks, two or three perhaps, as the health insurance for an oldie is more than the cost of the flight.  As I had not flown for twenty years, I was completely out of the picture as to the costs of travelling to another country.

We must both try and do a little each day even though we may not feel like it.  today I did absolutely nothing, but will get down to it tomorrow.
