Dew Drenched

with 2 comments

You know, I could get a lot more mowing done in a day if I didn’t need to wait so many precious hours for the grass to dry out from the overnight soaking of dew.

On the other hand, the wet hours during the first half of the days lately have given me a chance to knock off a few other miscellaneous chores that otherwise get passed over for the larger jobs.

I finally took a wheelbarrow into the woods to pick up a big pile of half-buried landscape fabric that had been dumped years before by previous owners. I discovered a piece of it several years ago in a most unsuspecting place off a trail, pulled up what seemed like an endless amount and then walked past it over and over through the seasons ever since, always thinking, “I should haul that out of here one of these days.”

Well, now it’s been hauled. Dew is not a bug, it’s a feature!

  1. When you haul the fabric out can you reuse it? Or does it go into trash to be hauled away? Were the previous owners attempting to manage weeds in the woods or was this just a convenient dump: out of sight; out of mind?

    • It’s pretty tattered but I am considering using it for natural fill where I am building up the landscape of the new driveway. There is a lot of black dirt within the tangled bundle.
      It looked like it had just been dumped in an out-of-sight spot.
