April 19, 2006 – Lawn Work

Here are the tulips up against the compost pile.
Today was a day of some “lawn work” is what people in town may call it. I don’t have a lot of time for the lawn, although I have a lot of it! Today was the first lawn mowing of the season – a day I face with some trepidation. It means lots of wasted time and points out to me that I haven’t yet implemented enough food naturescapes. Each year we lose a little lawn, but not fast enough.

One of the big tasks was moving the walnut logs that were cut up. I rolled many of them out of the way, hauled some of them away on a low trailer, and dragged the biggest one down the burn pile with the tractor. It’s nice to have the open space there to access that part of the farm without squeezing between trees or drive over the septic tank.
