My brother (visiting from NH) and I took the dead pine tree down this afternoon. We had about a 20 degree angle of play in dropping the tree, but we put it right in the center. (Dog pen, pig pen and chicken house were obstacles to be avoided.) Part axe and part chain saw did the job.
Then I planted two rows of spinach and a row of potatoes in the old pig pen. I have radishes coming up in both the usual garden and the pig pen garden. The pig pen radish leaves are at least twice as big-they were planted the same day.
And, the actual tickets for the Papal Mass in DC arrived via FedEx today!
Oremus pro invicem!
