some spare time + some gorgeous weather = some time outside in the yard.
All winter long I kept trying to use the electricity in the cabin but it wouldn’t work and I had to run an extension cord from another outdoor plug. Frustrating but it worked.
Rick wanted to plug in a tool today and did some detective work. When he pulled out the extension cord that goes into the cabin he found that it had been chewed in two. No wonder I couldn’t get anything to work!!!
The cord is orange so we figured the rabbits must have thought it was a carrot :D
The potted fig tree: I unwrapped the tree, to find that the burlap and the foam that I had used for insulation were still frozen into the ground. The insulation was definitely working.
I was able to slide the fig tree out of its winter home and it looks WONDERFUL.
It is now standing in front of the house, with a little plastic “greenhouse” wrapped around it, (with air vent at the top).
It’s hard to see the tree, with the shadows of the spiral poles but I’m sure you can figure it out ..
