4-25-06 VERMONT: The skies finally cleared this evening after more rain last night and this afternoon. I repaired the mint cover in the pasture. I was going to move it to another area, but saw mint shoots underneath so decided to leave it down for another season. I shoveled a lot of ox poop from the pasture to the vegetable garden site. I know discussion of that will make one reader pleased. Tomorrow I have a roto-tiller reserved to work all that ox excrement into the soil. I can taste the tomatoes already. Then I straighten up some fence posts. It is easy work now because the ground is still soft.
I also cut down and removed a bunch of low growing vegetative matter to open up an area of the yard, but I can’t say, “I was clearing brush.” You all know why.
