Yard work

We're getting there, slowly. We've had a break in the chilly and wet weather, enough to be able to cut grass (again), till up the garden plot, and do some other trimming and clean-up. This weekend looks like it might be wet again, so we'll pause. There is still work to do to get the loft ready for the new bathroom construction, so that will be our first priority.

The grass is cut!

The vegetable seedlings are doing well in the greenhouse. They'll be ready to go outside as soon as the garden plot is ready for them. Today I plan to shovel compost. We've also got the annual tune-up of the central heating boiler scheduled for this morning. I don't have to do anything but be here for the technician; he does all the work.

That wisteria against the house needs to be trimmed up and adjusted. The lilac on the right is done blooming.

I've got a pile of junk to take to the dump/recycling center and a list of little odd jobs to tend to. I guess I need one of those "round tuits" that everyone talks about.


  1. Well, I don’t know whose everyone is, but I have never talked about a round tuit.

  2. Mitch, haaaa!

    Walt, will you and Ken be sleeping in the guest room downstairs, during the renovations upstairs?

  3. What's that large leafed plant(s) around the well?

  4. mitch, perhaps you will one day, when you get a... you know.

    judy, I hope not, but we'll have to see how it goes.

    sheila, they are clary sage, a gift from a friend of our friend, chm. Ken got one plant and it re-seeded itself. He collected the new little plants and put them in pots. Last year, I transplanted them around the well. Now, this year, they're huge and have flower buds.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
