And so it begins.
The front yard - yes, all of it, bar the rosebushes - has just been dosed with Roundup. In a couple weeks, I'll go out, rake off the crud, try to break up the soil (going to be tricky; it's uncertain whether the soil or the cement around it is harder) and start thinking of re-seeding. If I do re-seed the lawn, it'll be drought-tolerant; I'm intending, for this year at least, to do any irrigation I do do by means of carrying a watering can. I want to think about every drop.
