Yesterday was a big day for the ITP backyard, I felled some large branches/trunks of (mostly dead) privet trees. The trees came down with a much louder crack than I imagined. Fear not, the sound was not from them hitting the deck or house, nor from any unexpected underground impediments. I may have underestimated the amount of limbs on privet trees because I spent about two hours doing cleanup and I still have a good amount of cleanup work ahead of me. I am also amassing a large pile of branches to burn this winter, and larger pieces that can start to dry for use next year. That being said, all of this must be done prior to the installation of my raised garden beds.
I was hoping to get back out in the yard this morning, but I am feeling lazy. Also, sunrise now happens later, about 8am, making it hard to do yard work on a weekday morning. Perhaps I can go outside and lop some downed branches and drag them up to the curb on my lunch hour.
In the category of frustrations, my left eyelid is tender again. I hope that I am not going to go through another cycle of inflammation…
Hope you had a happy and healthy Tuesday.
