They went mushrooming without me
Last night my accessory battery set off the alarm on my invertor saying it was running low. I thought that strange as I hadn’t been using it that much. So once I got it going this morning, I went over to the house and found Dan and Sue had left to go mushroom hunting without me. That’s because I sleep in for an extra hour. If you snooze, you lose.
Sue wants her lilac bushes trimmed up
I was wondering around the gazebo when I remembered that Sue had asked me to prune back the lilac bushes as they weren’t producing many blooms. I cut back the bushes you see here about half way which should stimulate the bushes into putting out lots of new growth. I also suggested that she watered them once and awhile.
Keeping the deer out
I took a break by these gates that were down which go into her fruit orchard that has new fruit trees Sue just planted and it wouldn’t be good if the deer got in and ate them up.
The morels are larger today
Now that they arrived with the shrooms, I made me a big bowl of chicken noodle soup with morel mushrooms in it for lunch. Yummm.
Getting the gates to stand back up
I went back to the house where Dan and I sat around in the yard shooting the bull until it started to cool and we went in for the day.
