I used to like ivy.
I thought it was a great accent piece, a nice filler but not anymore.
My yard has tons of ivy.
It runs along my driveway and then ends in a huge area (whole back corner) in my yard.
When we fell in love with our house we always knew the ivy would have numbered days.
We have been here about 17 months.
Last year we got rid of trees, now I have to get rid of the ivy.
It just takes up so much space, lots of extra space for the kids to play, a garden to grow and my dream a cute garden shed.

So last year we started to pull it out.
That freakin' ivy is so dense and so imbedded with itself and the ground it is very tiring.
I did a section the other day and amazingly enough it was easier to pull (probably since the huge rain made the ground so soft the stuff was coming out easily.
I am dying. At this rate I will have it gone by the end of the summer.
And I am all itchy now. I wore gloves, I swear.
I will have to tackle it slowly OR when I finally get my teaching position hire someone else to do it (let them be itchy).
Here's to another day out in the ivy.
