Now, had I been SMART, I would've started with the Garden Chores *immediately* after firing up the kiln! ('cuz temps were in the upper-60's/low-70's at the time - PERFECT "Yard-Chore Weather!"). Of COURSE I didn't do that! Instead, I set-about "cleaning-up" my 24 Christmas Ornaments (Umm, *before* the Tiki Shack got oppressively hot with the kiln running!!!). So I logged a couple hours' worth of Tiki Shack Time... And the ornaments are now drying (slowly) under loosely-wrapped plastic. Might start something new - might not! We'll see!
Anyway, after cleaning-up the ornaments, I looked outside and realized that the Veggie Beds were now in FULL sun and I wasn't too eager to tackle any of my yard chores (Ooooops!). Nevertheless, I did grab a pair of pruners and I DID hack-back the Morning Glory Vines (which were threatening to behead me as I walked thru the gate to the Secret Garden!).
Before (Sorry, no "Afters!"):
Love 'em, buttt....
They're pretty-damned "vigorous!"
I also did manage to hack-back Arte-the-Choke. No picture, but you've seen plenty of shots of Arte's Bed. And Arte has put-out a "pup" or two, so I expect that we'll get even more 'chokes next year! (Yay!)
And that was about as much "productivity" as my body would allow, for today!
Even though I have been walking and acting like a Normal Human Being for THIRTY DAYS NOW!!!! - I don't want to"push it" and risk a relapse! (Trust me when I say that relapses SUCK out loud!!).
Anyway, I've got one of the raised beds clear-enough for amending and re-planting and installing the framework for the cold-frames. That's a pretty-damn-good start, I think!
So, I'd have to say that - overall - this was a fairly productive weekend (I'll f**kin' take it!!!)
Not a whooooole lot. But enough, k?!!
Me = Happy. And that's all that matters! ('cuz it's All About Meeeee!!!!)
