A lot right now since we have a few projects going on in the back yard. Not so much in the front though

The outdoor chores never end around here. Thankfully we have goats to eat the weeds, alpacas to trim the lawns and chickens and turkeys to do bug maintenance. Now to find someone to clean off the lawn furniture. :)

 We need to plant grass. We got moved out here to Az and there is no grass in our backyard, just dirt. And we like playing in water so constantly tracking in mud is a no go lol.

We need to buy some lawn furniture also.

Already mowed the lawn,got a container for outdoor toys. I'm always picking up branches though because of all the trees. Pine needles are my big problem since I'm allergic to pine.
