Last month I posted about removing the shrubs and hostas in the back yard to make room for next year's garden. Click here to see the original post.
The biggest job, the cutting of the shrubs (thanks Dad for letting us borrow your chain saw) and digging out the stumps is now complete. We had no idea that the stumps would be such a pain to remove or that there were so many of them. We had to dig down at least 2 feet on each of the 20 stumps. We ended up breaking up the digging/chopping sessions since trying to get them all at once would have probably given us heart attacks.
