Meh. I'm such a GIRL

No fair!  I wish I was stronger.  I have a landscaping project that I want to do.  Well, actually I have a whole lot of landscaping that I want to do, but this is just a little segment all it's own.  It's all planned out in my head and it's great.  I just don't have the strength in my body to do the necessary prep work.  I have to dig out some grass in a big circle.  I got out there and jabbed the shovel in the ground a few times, but couldn't move much.  So, I tried to get Tom to dig it out for me with the tractor.  Really, all I want done is a thin top layer scraped off, then I can do the rest.  Now that he's ADD hyperfocused on the barn apartment, I may not be able to get him to do it.

Hmm, I need a tiny tractor just for me.

It's gonna be a small sitting area right across from the patio doors that lead off my bedroom.

You can kind of see the miserable little circle I dug.  It's about a ten foot circle, but now that I've thought about it, it probably needs to be a bit bigger.  I can't get used to the amount of space I have to work with.  Because of living in the city with a small suburban lot, I'm used to doing things on a smaller scale.  I need to think BIG...Texas big.  By the way, I did not dig that bare spot.  There used to be a tree there and the ground is bare because the grass hasn't recovered from the stump grinding.  I'm trying to make use of the bare spots before the grass grows back.

The soil is too dry and hard packed. You need to give it a copious watering and then it will be easier to dig up.
