Had I known that I was going to do a little tree management in WLF yesterday I would have waited to plant the tomatoes in the experimental part of the farm. It would have helped if had I better skills in tree management because then I would have been able to drop it into the area that I had intended and not bent some tomato cages and broken a few potato plants. 🙄 In the end all is fine and nothing was irreparably damaged, WLF will get some more afternoon sun, and I will have more wood to feed to Wee Little Chipper and Wee Little Fire Pit. I also filled another bag and a half with English ivy; slowly but surely I am getting it out of the yard.
I was not the only one doing damage to WLF yesterday, the caterpillar offspring of the white cabbage moth destroyed the remaining two cabbage plants, so there will be no cabbage for me this season. 😢
Oh, I snacked on some freshly-harvested sugar snap peas while working in WLF yesterday. 🎉
Before starting work this morning I am going to putter around WLF doing some much-needed organizing, cleaning, and future planning.
And then I’ll work. However today I will have a couple of hours of diversion thanks to being a Big Nerd Ranch alumnus. BNR is celebrating twenty years and have invited former students (I wish that they had hired me, but that’s another story) to watch some online seminars.
Tonight I will be watching an episode of last year’s Top Chef with Betsy. We may go crazy and actually watch the episode together in person, for the first time since February 2020.
The jury is still out on poison ivy. I have a few itchy spots, but nothing has festered yet. I’m still in the window for this however.
Hope your week is going well and that everything is falling into place for you.
