It was a lovely day for chopping down trees. We removed this mulberry, which was pushing up the foundation of our garage.
Side note - isn't our garage h.o.t.??
We also chopped up this black locust as, apparently black locust leaves are poisonous to chickens and this tree happened to have the bad luck of living near our future chicken pen.
Despite the thorns growing from the branches, twigs and trunk of this tree, we are quiet enamored with black locust and plan to do whatever we can to help them grow in non-chicken areas of our property. Locust burns hot in our wood stove and this good-sized tree is only 20-25 years old.
This sort of wood pile (we have 6 scattered around), I'm not so in love with:
Sugar spent her day smelling the flowers:
Our radishes are growing!
And some random knitting...fingerless gloves from super soft alpaca my mom picked up at Rhinebeck:
Now, we are off for pizza. Later!
