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's the main garden yesterday:

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]

    Welcome back home.


  2. Yes, definitely, welcome home!

  3. I am eating green olives from somewhere.

  4. You must be ecstatic to be at home, in the garden, in the spring...frost and all.

  5. Well, yes, but it's a bit of a shock, seeing all that must be done, and knowing it's only a respite -- my bags are packed should the old man take a turn for the worse.

    Hmm. Time to get hold of the kids, and tell 'em you're calling in favors. : p

  7. One of 'em's been pitching in. Another is graduating from PSU in a few weeks and then going straight into grad school, another runs a crew of phone bankers at PG&E, & the oldest, at 44, is overseas mostly and talking about early retirement ... o_o
