[gardeners] Good groan and moan

As I left for the grocery store, I asked DH, "what do you want besides Ben
Gay?"  Yesterday was the first day of garden renewal, well, at least the
human contribution.  The king is dead, and the vegetation is a-comin' up!
I cleaned out about 60% of one flower bed, and had a wheelbarrow and a yard
cart full of trimmings to be ground up.  Chuck had finally gotten the
mulcher started, and was busy grinding the apricot trimmings into chipped
wood footpath.  Today he ground up the stuff I had gathered yesterday, and
got started on last year's cornstalks, etc.  I'm dirty, sore, and feel
great.  I got one herb bed completely cleaned out except for some @#$%^
grass that has crept in.  Only five more to go.  Sigh.  Margaret
