Once and awhile I like to use the shovel and turn it all over but now that I am getting a weeee bit older I am finding the tiller is a bit easier. Got the old wood furnace going here today again. Started early this season burning wood but it sure feels good. I also filled up the oil tank as a back up so that should last us around two years or so. This morning I have been working on another short story for my column and just about got it finished so if things go right might get to starting another one this afternoon. Talk later.

I do got some leaves so will throw them around the plants some time today. Sunny here this morning and temperatures are at 32 degrees F. I still go by the old scale.

It is also a good time for one to plant their garlic for next summer. I got to go
