Today’s garden work was concentrated on cleaning up after my trees.
I do think that trees are worth the price that one pays for shade and beauty, but one must admit, they are not tidy.
This year, the acquisition of a yard sweeper made the gathering of fallen leaves much easier on my poor neck and back. Most of the leaves are down on my property, so once these leaves are picked up, that will be that.
While “sweeping” my lawn, I also gathered more black walnuts for the squirrels (I have gathered enough for my family and have them drying on screens) and gathered sticks for the woodpile to use for kindling.
