Tom goes out almost every day to prune and trim and do yard clean up. He keeps the yard waste bins full with all of his clippings and yard debris.
When it's raining he spends time in his greenhouse. Here he tends the tender plants that we overwinter, and nurses his cuttings. He has ordered tomato seeds and will soon be starting tomato plants.
This year his geranium cuttings didn't do well, but he has a few survivors to fill our pots. It might give him an excuse to add a few new ones to his collection.
He has been taking cuttings of some tender plants so he can donate them to my sister's plant sale in the spring.
I'm still very limited in what I can do in the garden. However when my grabber broke, the one I had had since my first back surgery seven years ago, and I needed to order a new one, I ordered a set with a longer one as well as the shorter one I still use every day to get dressed.
Saturday, while Tom was working outside, I helped. I used my new longer grabber to pick up wind debris off the lawn and driveway.
It was good to be able to do something useful. I didn't find much to pick up though, since Tom has everything is such good shape.
Tom isn't doing much today though. We had our second COVID vaccination yesterday, and today he is hurting. He had a similar reaction with the first shot. I'm achy too, but I never know if it's something new or just my normal malaise.
We did treat ourselves to a Starbucks stop on the way home yesterday though. We sat outside. The sun was shining and it was almost warm.The sun seems reluctant to make an appearance today. I'll have to make myself get out for a short walk this afternoon. Gotta keep moving.
