Yardening? No, it's not a typo. It's what many of us do around home -- yard work and gardening -- yardening.
It becomes extreme for many reasons. Depending on where you live, a heat wave, late/early frost, flooding, drought, insect invasion, plant diseases, and/or weed seeds floating over from your neighbor's unkempt yard all can lead to extreme yardening efforts. Or in my case, extreme measures are necessary because my yarden was conquered by weeds last year while I was recovering from hip replacement surgery. Now, I've got my work (and fun, too, I admit) cut out for me.
Whether or not you're a yardener, you can sit back and enjoy watching someone else work. After all, that is one of the favorite pastimes around WUville. Or you could show-and-tell about your own extreme yardening. The rest of us will be happy to watch you work, too. Kibbitzing and armchair supervision is welcome, and maybe even needed.
