Monkey Me

No picture today, sorry folks, but it is REALLY difficult to take a picture of yourself whilst in the upper branches of a tree. Why was I up there? Well, see, we have all these neglected fruit trees that need "a bit of thinning."

Let me draw you a picture: I had to prune for an hour just to be able to get my little five-foot-tall body into the tree. I spent most of yesterday afternoon in the upper branches leaning along the main limbs as far as I could reach cutting out the excess on our biggest Mutsu apple. Tomorrow I'll be climbing the peach tree. Today was for housekeeping and winter sowing. (See yesterday's post.)
