Back liniment

Things were only slightly out of control when I got home to Stony Run after four months away. Beloved works full time and could not do yardwork, but she did hire some grass cutting done.

Things are very strange here; the trees set fruit a month ahead of schedule and it has been up to 90F, yet this morning there was frost damage, even on the grape leaves. The benefit to this, at least in the early going, is some insect pests will have been set back by the late frost.

Here it is today, a little bit cut back:

We were not able to do our own starts this year, so we got some today, along with some bales of straw and some back liniment. [grin]
