Malcolm has been working out back cleaning up hedge thickets.  He first had to clear around where he put his Blue Martin house, then he moved up-hill to the orchard.  The pear tree was getting bad overgrown. He got all the fruit trees cleared, drug off the debris and pile it up, but hasn’t begun […]

Hello again. It has been a wonderful Saturday. One would think that spring has sprung in a big way, but wait, this is only the 7th of March. I am sure we are in for some more cold weather. The pear tree is in full bloom and the daffodils, yellow bells and so on are […]
