Making the Most of a Cold Day

Monday March 15, 2021 Guerneville CA.

Puttering around the yard

When I went out to care for the chickens this morning it was cold and windy so I figured it would be an in the house day.

I went back in the house and ate and then took a nap.

Suns out

When I looked out the window after a bit of a nap I could see the sun had come out so I got up and went out to see if it had warmed up a bit.

Pruning fruit trees

Well with a warm shirt on it wasn’t too bad so I got out some loppers and did a bit of pruning on these fruit trees. I just trimmed a few low hanging branches.prining

 

After that I sat down in this spot and enjoyed the day for awhile.sky3

 

Behind me I noticed these Perry Winkles were in bloom.winkles5

 

Blackberry vines

After a bit I got a shovel and dug up these unwanted blackberry vines. The chickens don’t like them much and avoid them just as I do.digging2

 

So I worked and rested and worked and rested and got most of the berry vines dug up. More will just pop up but if I don’t work on them constantly they will take over.dugup4

 

Chicken shadows

Around five with the sun low in the sky I let the chickens out into the front yard to graze.birds6

 

I always like watching them run out to graze.birds7

 

Frost tonight

I followed them over to the carrot patch, when my brother Tom went by and said it was going to frost tonight and I better cover up the citrus trees better, the white thing on the right.patch8

 

The wind had blown the cover around a bit so I fixed it up a bit, but.citrus9

 

That’s not going to work

Once I had it fixed up and looked at it, I could see the wind was going to blow it off again, so.wind10

 

Making it better

I rounded up some metal stakes to make a better cover for the two citrus trees.stakes11

 

I used some of the white stuff I used to use on my blueberries until I made a better metal fence for the blueberries so this wasn’t needed anymore and was better than what I had.cover12

 

The sun  had gone behind the mountains to my west a bit before I got that done so now the day was cooling down so I went in the house for the day and that was that.

The day turned out to be better than I thought it was going to be.

Nice day.
