This little guy was sunning himself on the fence yesterday. At first I wasn’t sure if he was even alive. It is unusual for racoons to come out during the day. There is clearly a family living in my neighbours garage. This one is still a baby.
This week’s theme is ‘Start a Garden’. It’s a little too early to start planting here but it was a great day to start prepping the garden. I pulled weeds, raked up dead leaves and plant material and started to turn the soil. We’ve had a fair bit of rain as of late so it made this job somewhat easier to do. I probably put two hours of work in the yard and I may regret it tomorrow. I’m already feeling it in my knees.
I did, however, discover that some plants are coming back on their own. My kale survived the winter and is thriving. Chives always reappear every year but I’m surprised that my container herbs, such as oregano, thyme, and tarragon have also returned.
