The past few days have been showery. Like it or not I do have things I need to be doing outside. I started pruning the young fruit trees. I think we planted them about 8 years ago. They are dwarf and semi dwarf types. One pear, one plum (like an Italian type we commonly just call prunes) and one apple that has grown into a nice tree but has never produced a single apple. I need Rick to stand at a distance and tell me which limbs to cut because I know I am leaving too many. When Ryan was our neighbor he pruned them for us. I also need to rake the mulch off the garlic rows. Working there will make my feet huge because the wet clay soil will stick to my shoes.

Here is a homemade trap for catching rats or maybe mice. Sometimes the simple things are just so clever! I wanted to post it somewhere to save it. I should make one and put it in the hay shed to see what I might catch.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
