Worms: Armageddon

Tuesday, June 21, 2005

So my attack against the worms in my yard hit it's second wave. This time I was beginning to dig out the sidewalk on the side of the building.

I made it about fifteen feet and then ran out of gas. The storm I mentioned below in my previous post made it a lot easier to scrape the dirt off of the sidewalk, but it also made it a lot heavier.

After diggin it out, I weeded the dirt and then transported it to our front patch of lawn. We're going to have to reseed that. One of my building mates found out that when Round-Up says safe on grass, it must not have meant OUR grass. So we figured some fresh dirt might do the area well.

I also found out our Wheelbarrow is not near as stable as one would wish it to be. At one point I had it nice and full with a load when it decided to tip over and bury me calf high in dirt. Note to the manufacturer, those plastic brackets between the metal frame and Fiberglas bucket flex WAY to much.

Anyway, we now have a bit of sidewalk. Hopefully soon the rest will be dug out and then we can landscape it and make it look all pretty. Not to mention it would be nice if it didn't get grown over again ;O)

Check out all of the pictures on the Visual Edition!

Edit: I did indeed steal this title from the name of a game. People who don't like worms *cough*Marie*cough* should check it out. Defintiely hilarious.
