While Spring is almost visible on the distant horizon, it's still too early to do much of anything with the gardens, but I have puttered around in them a bit. Right now, the focus is on next winter's firewood ... I had four cords delivered this weekend - 2 madrone and 2 Douglas fir. My wood guy cuts them into rounds and delivers them by the truckload - it's up to me to split and stack it all. I'm no spring chicken, but I still love a good workout, so I split everything by hand with an 8-pound maul. Keeps me in shape and out of trouble.
