Papa Pea did more chainsaw work.
We ended up with a nice pile of to-be firewood for next year.
Dear daughter was chief in charge of the shredder/chipper operation. She then took wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow into our little orchard and spread a lovely, heavy mulch under each fruit tree.
What did I do all day? Sat on the deck and drank iced tea. It was a great place to be because that ol' sun shining down all day was really HOT!
Okay, I confess. I actually didn't sit on the deck all day. Because our daughter was here to help with the clearing operation, I got to spend the whole day in the garden. I got the raised beds completely weeded and some planting done in the field garden.
I think everything in the garden grew a couple of inches with the heat and sunshine after all the rain we've had. My big pumpkins (planted under hot caps) look to have sprouted nicely, but no show yet for the small pie pumpkins. Maybe tomorrow?
If it doesn't rain overnight (and it is supposed to be clear -- fingers crossed), I should be able to hill up the potatoes tomorrow. I'm way late on doing that because of all our rain and our tater crop is going to suffer if I don't get it done PDQ!
