Well, like I predicted earlier, the snow is gone, revealing the green grass and mushy ground. So, it’ll be a few days before I can get the tractor out.
When I went down to the mailbox, I noticed the Paulownia and one of the old cherry trees lost part of a limb, I assume due to the wet snow weighing it down. One of those branches landed precariously close to one of the gooseberry plants. Those two cherry trees are full of dead wood, and would be better off being cut down. Even though they still produce a bit of fruit every year, it’s way too high up for us to get to it, and the birds pilfer it before we would even have a chance. So, it wouldn’t be a big loss.
