Plum wore out!

The morning was spent with a couple friends, coffee, and yarn shopping – so fun! The sun was shining when I got home,  and it only seemed right to spend some time outside. Anything to avoid housework.
I got the veg garden cleaned up and lightly tilled; leaving in some broccoli, chard, and garlic that wintered over.

Speaking of wintering over, I harvested  carrots left from last year! There’s something to be said for a mild winter, I guess.

A bit of weeding was next, and pruning the raspberries. I was pleased to see the daffodils coming up. Spring is coming.

And then the Mr decided it was as good a time as any to take out the walnut tree. Yup.

The tree has been reduced to a pile of limbs and branches six feet tall. The tree had a dead spot in the center of the trunk, and was too big for the space anyway; we want a small greenhouse and smaller (less messy) plants back there.
Now we are too tired to make dinner, so I declare it a pizza night, followed by a bit of knitting and maybe a movie.
Hope everyone else got to enjoy the sunshine! Well, I guess folks on the east coast might be dealing with snow, but hopefully the storms aren’t too bad.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
