I might as well do it today.
We’re having the most wonderful morning here. The day started out sunny and rather cold, -5C (23F) and now it’s around 10C (50F) and to my big surprise no wind! The kitchen door is open and the dogs walk in and out as they please, well that is if they can manage to pass above Nova because she won’t leave her spot in the sunlight 🙂
It isn’t especially easy to pass by since she is in a lousy mood, she refused to eat her food and I refuse to give her anything else. One could think that this would be a sign of illness but it isn’t, she willingly ate any crap she could find on our morning walk but her own food? No way! 🙂 She gets like this every spring so I’m used to it and hunger will eventually make her eat the food she gets 🙂
I’ll most likely mow the lawn later today but I need to find the grass collector. I usually never collect the grass but I was thinking of putting some in my composts. I can’t only have dog poop in them, well I could but it’s always best to mix with other things. I’ll also put some twigs in it so air can travel down to help with the composting. I’ve realised I need more composts, I fill them way too fast. I’ve saved a few sites in my computer in how to build composts, I could of course do it the traditional way on the ground but I also know that it soon would be filled with the worst weeds there is and I really don’t need to help spreading them even more effective 🙂
I could of course buy a new one but I also need to buy a new wood chipper, the old one is giving up now and I have a lot of twigs and branches to chip and will most likely have the coming years since I’m slowly removing most of my lilacs and I do have a few other dead things I can chop down. I also need a new chain to my electric chainsaw, it is time to trim the hedge. I do that every fifth year or so and the stems get rather thick during that time 🙂 I could of course buy a brushcutter, it would be more effective to be honest but since I now have that chainsaw I really don’t need one.
It is time for a pot of tea and after that I’ll see if the grass has dried enough to be mowed.
Have a great day!
