a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Obsessed or Possessed...

Help!  I can't stop.
The fig won the draw
along with the plum trees
and a few other sprouts.
Plants sprouting every where.
I guess you're wondering what is wrong with me.
Remember last year Hubby almost died?
I didn't do much trimming then.
Well, I'm playing catch up.
The Lady Bug posed.
Found a vacant nest from last year
and have baby figs!
Does it look like I did any thing?
Fig straight  ahead, plums to the left,
minus the dead limbs and stray trees.
The tools wait for another job.

You've got it looking good! Your farm is beautiful. I wondered if it was normal for a fig to look like that. Ours looked the same and I cut back all those dead limbs.

LOOKING GOOD... you should be slumped down exhausted today but i know you will be out at sun up using those tools... you should take a day to hang out with bonnie in her private pool.. LOL....I liked the new size of the header...

It looks GREAT! I've found that if I don't keep up then nature wins big time, then it's horrible for this old woman to cut it back.

Lynne said...

Having fun yet?

Do you cut down the sprouts or move them elsewhere?

You inspired me. :) :) I used one of those big clipper thingies yesterday and cut lower limbs on my redbud...which I am sure is going to die now because it's the wrong time of year..but I was tired of getting slapped in the face with the limbs when I mow! Took me 10 minutes...hmmm..somehow I don't think I worked as hard as you do. Rest up now, ok?

Good tools are the key to happiness, I always say!...:)JP

Not possessed, maybe a little obsessed but that's good. You're trying to get caught up on work. When your done there on the farm, I have more if you'd like more things to do.

Looking good girl!!!

Great improvement. I am always playing catch up with no excuses for me. Isn't is satisfying when you get a project done?
