Weekend Wrap

This weekend I began tackling the yard again. Most importantly, the hornets seemed to have finally died off, so I could put the hay bale away from the house and get rid of that accursed nest. Yay, cleaned up back "porch" and mildly cleaned up back yard.

A few of the tomato plants are still growing, especially the parts near the brick wall. That surprised me and pleased me.

I cut enough kale to make kale pecoras, two rounds of kale chips, and put some extras into the fridge. That was about 1/3 of our available kale. We have LOTS of kale. The cloth covering has not only dissuaded nibblers, but protected them from the frost.

I've agreed to create Jen an inset spice rack for Christmas. I gathered data and drew up the plans. Now, I need to buy materials. I'll also need a better mitre saw and box. My current box simply isn't precise enough and my saw tears the wood up too much.

That leaves a present need for DesignGirl. I'll need to bug her again.
