Sweatpants and Springtime in Albuquerque
Sexy Nerd has big plans for our yard this year. He also has no shame about being photographed in grungy sweatpants...outside...where all our neighbors can see him. That said, he surely won't mind me posting these photos on my blog, right?
He recently installed the wire fence you see behind him. It sections off our yard into the attractive hang-out-on-the-patio area and the garden.
The Garden (coming soon, I hope!)
Sexy Nerd is hoping to grow an assortment of fruits and vegetables this year, including tomatoes, jalapeños, watermelon, kale, cantaloupe, bell peppers, cucumbers, and strawberries. By fencing off half the yard, he has effectively prevented his crops from being devoured by pests.
For maximum enjoyment of the patio section, we have our handy dandy bug zapper! Betcha didn't know people actually use these. Neither did I. Welcome to Albuquerque!
So, what's the best feature of our backyard? Is it that miniature (really miniature!) golf course section you see in the photo above? Is it that lush, green lawn (also phony baloney) in the photo at the top?
Nope. It's the smoker that I bought Sexy Nerd for his birthday. While he was busy setting up his garden and installing his fence, he had ribs smoking!
As for myself, I was taking a loooong springtime nap.
