Saturday January 16, 2016 Jenner CA.
Rain in the morning
It was raining as I got it going this morning, but the weather guys said it might slow up some around noon, so I headed to Jenner in the rain. It was raining as I pulled into Jenner so I continued on to the river’s mouth overlook, just past the town of Jenner on highway One.
Rains picking up
I drove on home in the rain, but eventually it let up and stopped so I went out in the yard to putter around some.
Repairing the hole
I’d been looking at this hole in my driveway for awhile now. A big tree root rotted under there and it caved in a while back. This valley used to be filled with some of the biggest trees in the world, so there are lots of huge roots under the ground slowly rotting away. This one was from a six foot diameter pepperwood tree that they pulled out in the 1960’s to pave the driveway when I was a kid here.
Then I got some shale gravel from when they drilled our well last year and put it on the top of the hole. Good for now. I’ll give it a year or two to see if it sinks anymore. If not, I’ll likely take some of the gravel out and put some cement in there on top.
The next thing I wanted to do was propagate some table grapes around the yard. I have some growing, but I want more, so I cut some canes from the grape vines and pushed them into the ground in hopefully good spots to grow. Now I’ll wait and watch for new growth on any of them this summer and see if any of them make it.
The sun came out, so I just sat around enjoying the yard for the rest of the day, which is the first day it’s been nice enough to do that in awhile, now that the days are getting longer.
