Wrote this AM. Appended chapter 3 of Superior Wolf to its page on this website. Next week I’ll take down chapter 1 and put chapter 4 and so it will go until I have written myself to the end. We’ll see where it goes.
Moved mulch, created by renting the super chipper from Home Depot and grinding up branches, tree trunks and chunks of shrubs. The mulch goes on the perennial bed first, keeping the weeds down as we move into high summer and also cooling the soil just a bit. This involves a wheel-barrow, a pitchfork and a lot of moving from one place to another.
After a nap I unburdened the kitchen table of a couple of months of magazines, catalogues and desparate fund-raising pleas. This involved a paper-sack, a lot of sorting and moving from one place to another.
Now I’m gonna cook supper, red beans and rice with some prime rib left overs thrown to make it interesting. The now standard fare of lettuce, onions and cilantro from our gardens inside and out will join store purchased tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers for a colorful salad. Later in the season we will have all of these ingredients.
I also learned from a piece of paper recovered from the literary overburden of the table that I can harvest the garlic now. Somehow garlic has become my favorite crop. Don’t know why.
