The workday originated when Jere learned that we wanted to kill everything around our entrance area rocks and mulch that area – to make our yardwork easier.
Still working on the patio area where the old bushes had been removed.
Preparing to plant four azalea bushes.
Jesse putting the cage around the four tomatoes while Colt watched.
Transplanting garden tea that got into the area where I wanted to plant a pepper.
Josh putting the finishing soil on the redbud tree.
Roy and Deb are preparing this flowerbed for mulch.
I love the thought of doing less weeding this summer.

Debbie asking where these things should be placed.
The rhododendron was in full bloom.

The azaleas are planted – now the guys are adding red stones. We don’t mulch next to our house to help prevent termites – per the person who treated our place for termites several years ago.
Jordan had arrived by this time.
Continued tomorrow night.
