These are the people I love! That's my sweet mama in the middle. I wonder what she's thinking.

Garden Work in January!

Today, John decided that we needed to start the clearing out of a few trees near the garden plot that are preventing the sun from getting to the garden in the early part of the day.  So, we finished our morning work and set out to cut some wood.

We have a fairly large garden plot, approximately 1000 square feet, but before today, it only got the hotter evening sun.  So, knowing which of the trees needed to come out, John started cutting.  He's been cutting wood since he was old enough to say "tree", so he fell two right off the bat.  Put them right where he wanted them.  He cleaned up the wood and cut it into lengths perfect for our wood furnace.  Then, it was my turn to help!

We pulled the wood splitter (the greatest thing since sliced bread) right over to the wood and away we went!

We had that wood split in absolutely no time.  And, we could see immediately that the garden would benefit greatly from our labors.

Now, for the stumps.................. and that's another day.  But, for now, we have a nice supply of green wood to season for next Winter, a good feeling inside and a sore shoulder.  :)

I ended the work day with this.............
