I spent the day in the garden on Wednesday on my "day off." I got a couple of jobs crossed off my list, but the jobs on my list is still a mile long. I did however get the annuals planted in pots. I even bought a couple of window boxes full of plants this year.
We bought a new to us "toy" on the weekend a wood chipper. We got it through Kijiji and paid $400; it sells in Canadian Tire for around $1,000, so we were pleased with the price. Dh is enjoying using it and has been making lots of wood chips/mulch for the garden.
So I spent part of the morning putting mulch around some trees and bushes. As you can see by the photo below we have a lot of branches still to shred. You will also be pleased to know that I can't start it, and dh doesn't want me doing it.........which means one less job for me...YEAH!!!
In the afternoon I spend a while hauling more branches up from the bottom of Kamikaze Hill to the top. Also picking up some logs from the trees dh has been trimming. That was hard sweaty work, even with using the tractor and trailer. I also finally got the field cut again, this will be the third time it has been cut in the past five days. I did a double cut the first time, as it was so long and I have just finished doing it again. I have more or less got caught up with cutting the grass, which is just as well as we are forecast for rain AGAIN!!
I saw the following story about solar highways in an email I received and thought you may be interested:
As I write this on Wednesday night I am just so tired so haven't had an opportunity to visit anyone's blog. My apologies for that; but I just don't have the energy. I hope to catch up with you all over the next few days.......
