Irrigation system: complete and leak-free, w00t!!
Weeds: beaten back, sort of. They seem to know that they have been dealt a serious blow by my landscaping efforts, because wherever I carelessly left a leaf or two exposed at the edges of the new beds, they are exploding into new growth. I think I'd better advance my plans for mulch in a hurry while the advantage is still mine. Also, to every last bit of creeping charlie everywhere, I say "YOU GO TO HELL AND YOU DIE".
