Re: Angry Husbands.
Have to agree with Laura W above– if you possibly have the $$$, hiring a gardener is a must for some of us. I came to that conclusion as I struggled to keep up with my small acreage, esp. before I married a guy who loves to mow! But even beyond the mowing, I have a need to maintain and slowly build the perennial beds I have hacked out of the green Oregon fields. So I hired a friend who had a gardening business, and she was amazing! She moved and I am on my second “hired hand,” and am thoroughly grateful for the help. My husband likes to grow things, but he doesn’t have the greenest thumb, and he really has a huge chore in the mowing, so that’s how we roll.
