We are expecting cold weather with the temperatures predicted in the teens. After hubby drove off, I looked over at the well house. Some holes needed to be plugged along the bottom. During last year's coldest spell the main water line broke. The well house was built around the well and rests on blocks of wood with rocks tucked around the bottom. Also, since we have a dual water source -- well and rainwater collection -- the main line from the rainwater collection system goes through the well house. We had a year to get the holes plugged but somehow something else was more important until today, that is. Since I was already outside, I got the bags of crushed granite to fill in and around the holes and made sure the heat wire is operational. A flip of a switch turns on both water pipe heaters.
After the well house was secure, I walked the wheel barrow over to the big garden. Hmmm, why not start digging a trench around that garden so black plastic edging can installed to outline the garden area. It'll be easier to mow or use a weedeater without destroying growing veggies and melons. Again, hmmm, think I'll pull a couple of weeds while here along this row.
So, on second thought, I need to weed the rows at the other end of the garden. The black plastic over the two back rows is solarizing (killing) the weeds, I hope. Of course, the weeding in the first two rows is not wasted; but tomorrow or on the next mild day I'll tackled the rows just to the right and to the back of the dirt pile for corn.
Approximately 3-1/2 hours later I came in for brunch, consisting of fresh baked, sliced chicken on whole wheat with provolone cheese, tomatoes, olives, mayonnaise, Grey Poupon, Frito's, and a glass of skim milk. BTW, I'm behind in weeding the big garden; it was scheduled to be completed by February 1. I'm tired and off to take a nap. :D
Until next time, God bless.
