  1. Road Map for the Day - January 29, 2011

    by , 01-29-2011 at 10:07 AM
    I need to focus on the house today. First, I need to do my morning exercise. Then I need to get the kitchen cleaned up, which I'll do after I feed everyone breakfast. I will set up the compost pile in its new and more convenient location. Maybe dig one more hole for transplanting.

    Normally, I'd try to factor exercise into the day, but I am still a little weak and shaky from being sick, so I don't think that is happening today.

    I have at least one load of wash to do, ...

  3. January 28th in a California Garden

    Not much going on this week. The citrus continues to perform well, with the blood oranges and lemons in the lead, and the navel oranges and grapefruit trailing a bit. Everything else is still dormant, waiting for the weather to get just a little bit warmer before busting out.

    I pruned the grapes back this week, just to get them back into shape for spring. I want to plant them in the ground this year, but I haven't gotten around it it. They are each in large planters, so they will ...

  5. Road Map for the Day - January 28, 2011

    Recovering from "something," not sure if it was food-poisoning or a 24-hour bug, but yesterday was pretty much a total write-off.

    Today, I am still weak and a little dizzy, so I am going to have to take it easy.

    This morning, at 9:00 am, the vet and the equine dentist are coming to float all the donkeys' teeth. This should be quite a production, but I'm hoping the vet will do the bulk of the "heavy lifting" in getting each donkey where he/she needs ...
