Buried Treasure

So, in an attempt to be a blogger, I thought I'd share what we've been up to. We have been working on preparing our little courtyard for planting some stuff. (I'm going to give "green-thumbing" a try.) Two weeks ago, we cleaned out all the wood chips and landscaping fabric and a bunch of construction garbage...plywood, shingles, rusty nails, glass, pop cans, candy bar wrappers, etc. It was nasty! We then used my dad's rototiller to mix in some mulch. But, as Brady was using shovel to see how hard-packed one area was, he hit something. We soon decided it was a chunk of cement or something. Needless to say, we gave up that day. We had worked so hard, only to have our hard work be flustered by lazy construction workers. Well, after talking to one of my clients (Liz, who is my gardening mentor), I got up the energy and a little motivation to try to dig up this thing. So, this morning I went out to work in our garden and after some help from Brady, this is what we pulled out:
PS. GO UTES! We were at the game today...we beat #11 UCLA 44-6!

WoW Shawnee! That thing is huge. What in the world would that have been left there for? Maybe the cement mixing machine sprung a leak or something. Good work though. I'm sure it will be fun to have your back yard nice.

I'm excited you blogged too. I like it!! :)
