Kiyan enjoys putting sticks into the AC fan way too much. I think we'll have to block off the unit somehow, either a cage around it or a fence. I'm hoping a new AC has smaller vents that would stop him from shoving stuff in. |
I spent about half an hour pulling a whole bunch of maple seeds from the garden beds (and still have one to go, had to stop due to Kiyan putting sticks into the AC fan). I'm hoping that they are done falling from the tree, since none were green and I didn't see any coming down while I was out there. One of the hoop house corners came undone, tomorrow I'll hit home depot and get a corner bracket to fix it. Maybe I'll do all four corners, the whole thing is under more strain than the other beds due to positioning.
I'm almost done with the compost, the last bit may go into the wild corner of the yard for actual pumpkin planting. I'm not doing anything else back there anyway. Laying out some newspaper for weed control and topping it with wood mulch wouldn't hurt, assuming I have that much mulch left after doing the rest of the house, the garden, and the swingset.
