With the turn of the season over the past couple of weeks, we are getting more and more rain and I figured it might be a good idea, sooner rather than later, to remove the carpets that we've placed around the trees in the first place to keep them from drying out during the drier summer months.
So off we went on a cold, windy, rainy, monday morning, to get on with it:
|Up and down the hill, collecting carpets.|
|My "puffiness" is not a water retention problem,|
it's the wind blowing me literally off the hill!
|Checking for spiders and other "monsters" before|
handling the carpet.
|My poor little tree! A horrible Nor' Easter blew some of them over, stake and all! fortunately they are tough little|
buggers and I could just straighten it up and stake it again.
|We found these bugs under most of the carpets. |
Hope it's not a bad thing!??
