Monday already? 🐀🐀🐀
And don’t look now, but we are reaching the end of March!
It was an interesting weekend for WLF, which is now continuously getting blanketed with pollen. On Friday I spent a long time digging Potato Trench #2, getting quite the workout extracting a fairly large tree root and tweaking my left knee in the process. Successfully dug, I was able to get some potatoes planted into bags and set into the trench. Given that we are predicted to have freezing temperatures at week’s end, I’ll have to hold off moving anything else outside for at least another week — not that anything has grown large enough to necessitate getting planted outdoors… ☹️ On Saturday I did a few more chores for WLF, the most notable of which was feeding sticks through My First Wood Chipper/Shredder and creating wood “chips” to line the bottom of Potato Trench #2. At lunchtime today I will have a look around WLF to see if anything was disturbed by yesterday’s wind and rain, do some weeding, and figure out a plan for covering anything that may be sensitive to frost.
Of course on Saturday morning I walked with Betsy and Bella, and picked up an entire bag’s worth of trash around East Atlanta Village before our appointed meetup time.
Yesterday I drove out to Braselton for Black Sheep. It’s a really long way to go if you are not actually doing the hash trail nor going to the brewery for the On After, but I wanted to get out and I figured there would be a mention of Blue Ball Special’s passing, so I went. I played dog sitter while Double Suck ran trail and walked Mrs Bojangles for a bit. Mrs B and I walked though the family cemetery of the Braseltons, many of whom lived long lives even during the 1800s, and I took a photo of a half-remaining freestanding hearth. Along a power line cut I saw plenty of flora that I wished to take home and plant in/around WLF; I don’t know who I am anymore?!?! I also found my first tick of 2021 while sitting at the end awaiting the hounds to arrive. Ticks. Ugh.
I have a late afternoon meeting today and won’t be able to be Glory Mole’s flour mule, but I will be there for her trail and some pizza eating. 😁
Hope you all had an interesting, healthy weekend.
