January 2, 2012
Sunny, mid-40's, a sometimes stiff west wind. Worked in the garden between late morning to mid-afternoon.
Further pruning of grapes, finely chopping the vines into paving for the sunroom patio, which now has a dry raised floor.
Continued working in compost and garden debris from the composters, turning over the beds and turning in the materials to blend with the soil. Left the beds very rough, ungroomed, just as the sodden soil came off the shovel, in big clods. This will let plenty of air down in the soil to keep it drier and help decomposition of the organics.
Reorganized the sunroom and tool chests. Started picking the abundant Scarlet Runner beans. There will be pounds, lots on Mike's side of the fence. Pruned the willows by the front gate.
Got robbed the other day, my camera bag stolen with the Olympus (D-620L) digital camera, Eneloop charger and AA's, flash drive with image and HTML files, cell phone and charger, notebook with lots of new writing and almost full, passport and $200 cash. A hard loss, a real setback, great sadness.
Thought for now ...
Don't say the old lady screamed. Bring her on and let her scream.
