The sun came out this weekend—solar production doubled, for 4KW to 8KW per day! We leaped on the sunny days to catch up on outside chores. So, since Wednesday afternoon, we have:
v Washed and sundried six loads of laundry, mostly sheets and towels.
v Mowed and trimmed the entire yard—front one day, back the next.
v Planted all of the potatoes.
v Moved two yards of soil into the reconstructed garden beds.
v Moved bricks around to create a pathway to the solar display.
v Admired the tulips.
v Chipped all of the prunings from the year.
v Planted root crops in the ground—parsnips, carrots, and beets.
v Cleaned up the herb garden.
v Weeded everywhere.
v Washed the outside chairs.
v Opened up the greenhouse so that the tomatoes were buffeted by fresh air.
v Read in the sun.
v Walked around the Arboretum to look at spring flowers.
We were not the only ones working on projects—when I picked up a friend for a walk, her partner had just reinforced his greenhouse and was working on patching holes. He, too, had a list in mind and a gleam in his eye.
