Just wanted to let you know that the cats and tulips didn’t keep me away from working in the backyard. We have new neighbors, and their beautiful black cat seems to think our backyard is the place to be. Here he is, lying on our patio table:
There is much to be pruned in the backyard, and I did some of that, but quickly filled our gardening container and even had brush left over which I stacked on the side of the house, planning to cut it up next week. But, Terry and I talked and decided it could go in our regular garbage can as it’s never too full. You can see from these pictures that there is still more pruning to do:
The nandinas are especially overgrown at this time of the year. Once I get them cut back, they will remain that way through the summer with only an occasional trim needed.
Our temperatures are high this week–in the 80s–so I have started running the sprinklers. Since we had a really cold winter, makes me wonder if we’ll have a really hot summer.
Still making juice. This one was apple, cranberry, chard stems, carrot, pear, and fennel. The chard stems made it a little “green” tasting.
