I have not taken the time to post for several days now, I have been on LJ everyday , But someone has always had a question that I felt I could help with, so I've been spreading what wisdom I have about their subject and dropping those little pearls of knowledge around. I just hope someone has been helped and no one has been angered.

     I have been in the woods most of my spare time this past few weeks, doing clean-up after the select cutting on the timber that needed to be removed. Lot of hard work - But very enjoyable. We have 27 acres of woodland and its like our small game preserve, Absolutely no hunting is permitted and we offer a sort of haven from the surrounding areas that are hunted, Quite heavy - so we have places that are thick with wild plum, honeysuckle, Blackberrys, Etc. as a safety zone with a creek that flows through center of a 4 to 5 acre patch, and this all is connected to bigger woods, this area we never go into as to let the deer and other critters feel safe, no humans allowed. The rest we keep cleaned the best we can of any trees that have damage or disease and let the white oak, red oak, hickory, red buds and maples among a few, we allow them to have their way. Our yard is approx. 12 acres with new gardens this year, that are still in construction phase. I am doing 6 new raised beds 4 ft. wide X 25 ft. long for our Old Fashioned Tomatoes and other veggies, like carrots, broccoli, all types of lettuce and spinach, kale, swiss chard, to name a few. And we also have a pumpkin and squash patch, and one for cucumbers , which we plant in a big patch of sunflowers and let them grow up the stalks for easy pickin's, also we have the needed Herb beds for those things so needed in the kitchen and for our health. Well I feel much better now as having to post, I feel I have not totally neglected LJ even if it was just rambling.

      You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, this is no other life but this." -- Henry David Thoreau
