This weekend, T. spent large chunks of time ripping large chunks of overgrown undergrowth out – what had thought was razor-wire-like-vines over a bush turned out to be razor-wire-like-vines over more of the same, for instance, and there are grape vines growing over everything; there are entire TREES that have been choked out by grape vines in our hedgerow. (I hear grape burns nicely).
Plus side: we know the soil’s good for grapes, which are on our list of to-cultivate plants (just not, ah, trellised up the 40′ pine?).
Today, T. and I were dragging piles of chopped vines into the hedgerow (mulch!); I asked:
“Is that an apple behind you?”
“In the pine tree?”
“We have pine-grapes, why not pine-apples?”
And, indeed, we have pine-apples (A small apple tree growing right up against the pine tree, putting out different apples than either of the other two apples on the property…)
Michikip is holding another free icon day, and ysabetwordsmith has given me an idea for naming my prompt-calls, so I’ve commissioned a giraffe icon from Michikip.
Speaking of Ysabet, head over to her journal for a discussion on her serial poetry and an overview of her poetic series
I am working on longer prompts now for this past weekend’s call for prompts – if you donated, please finalize where you would like your wordcount to go. If you would like to donate, I am counting all donations to continue prompt work this week at $0.01/word.
Today’s links come from the awesome cluudle, who believes (as I do), that our theoretical pygmy goats deserve a castle.
