On the day's I don't have to work or on the weekends, I try to balance my Runescape time with and equal amount of time working outside or exercising. I work on landscaping the yard and do some actual real life farming in our garden. One of this summers projects is to completely landscape the front of our house. So, this weekend, in between working on slayer for the RSBandB skill of the month, I decided to start the task of trying to remove this out of control beast of a lilac bush in front of our house.

Image

Cutting the thing down was easy enough, got that done on friday and ended up with a nice pile branch's that I can run through a wood chipper later to either use as mulch or compost. Today I tried to dig the thing up, what a MONSTER! Im sure the bush is as old as this out, because it has huge roots that go deep. I tried digging around it, cutting roots along the way, but the stump is still solid with no sign of being loose. I'll trying again tomorrow, but if I don't make anymore progress, I'm just going to cut it down at the ground level and apply some stump killer.

If the thing wasn't so close to the house, I would dump some gas on it and set it on fire. I wish real life farming was as easy as it is in runescape. That I could just right click on the bush and have it removed for me, LOL.

Anyone else have any stump removing experiences?

Here's a picture of part of my real life farming, a raised bed garden I put together. I had to put up a raised bed because the soil here is full of rocks. This picture is from last year.

We also have some blueberry bushes and a grapevine I started last year. We plant melons in another part of the yard up against a fence. We also had sunflowers last year, which ended up being a big Fail, lol. They got really nice and tall and looked great, but the birds destroyed them going after the seeds. The other big fail from our garden last year was our corn. I had about a dozen stalks planted in the raised bed, but at some point some deer wandered onto our yard, poked their heads over the garden fence, and had lunch. I only constructed a small chicken wire fence to keep the small critters out, didn't count on deer being a problem, lol.

Cool, I don't have much of a green thumb.

i bought one of these. It's a money plant, suppose to give good luck. My last one died because my mom took it into the sun and it burnt to a crisp.

These can't be in direct sunlight.

Jealous ...
I've been wanting to get back into gardening for a few years now.
Problem here being crap soil. Plus the back yard can't even grow grass because of the trees that block out the sun.

Use to grow sunflowers and watermelons. Front yard could do that till the city people destroyed our garden patch when they fixed some storm drains underground or something.
Covered what little soil we had with cement and left.
