I took most of the last two weeks off of work while my mother was visiting. Despite it raining 25 of the last 30 days or so, we still got quite a bit accomplished. My mother organized my shed, helped me donate things to the local Habitat Re-Store, made my kitchen spotless, and planted many many things. All while helping me focus on getting important house winterizing things done and carrying a lot of wood to the woodshed. I feel caught up, for the moment. It was nice to have someone else around.
But now she's gone back to her house and I'm back to work. Sigh.
Here's what I picked the other day. New plants learned - birdsfoot trefoil and yarrow! (at least I think..)
