Friday Yardening

Today I pulled weeds and cut brush around the septic tank cap.  One of my projects for this season is trying to grow something other than weeds there.  I've been trying grass, and it hasn't worked.  So I'll throw down more topsoil, and try some rabbit-resistant annuals, maybe a rhubarb plant and comfrey too.
