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.
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.
After that I sat down in this spot and enjoyed the day for awhile.
Behind me I noticed these Perry Winkles were in bloom.
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.
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.
Around five with the sun low in the sky I let the chickens out into the front yard to graze.
I always like watching them run out to graze.
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.
The wind had blown the cover around a bit so I fixed it up a bit, but.
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.
Making it better
I rounded up some metal stakes to make a better cover for the two citrus trees.
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.
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.
