Taking on a new, long term project of making the backyard J friendly, making it a productive and enjoyable space while also making it less maintenance long term. I am probably biting off more than I can chew, but will remind myself frequently to pace myself and that it will be a ongoing project that will evolve in its own way despite my preplanning (or lack thereof.)
