Well, a couple or 3 hours on the end of a weed trimmer was just about all I could handle this morning. Big thunder heads are all around, so come on rain, fall and remove my temptation to go out to do more. Wait, let me go prune the roses, then it can rain.
Back inside, pruned the 7 roses in the garden. Hauled the Mimosa and Cumquat trimming up the burn pile in the front. After that's burned, I'll spread those ashes out in the garden. The rose prunings will just be mowed up and allowed to decompose back into the soils.
I try to waste nothing here. Its that sustainability thing, you know. Well, we're not all the way there, but I'd say we're in the 90% range of reduce, reuse, recycle. By this time next year, God willing, I think we might be around the range of producing 50% of our food. We are getting to the exciting point.
