It's been an exceptionally hectic couple of weeks at school--even so, over the weekend, I managed to:
Clean up the mess left by winter and ready the garden for spring growth (just one "before" shot--"after" shots to come late, I'm sure);
Repair a crumbling front stoop with some salvaged bricks, mortar, and a finishing spritz of vinegar;
Show my friend Kurt Caswell how to make canoe paddle blanks;
Pause to admire the first garden blooms;
Donate a total of nine bags of leaf mulch to various students starting their first gardens (the result of the garden cleanup--no photo);
And accidentally take a picture of my foot with my iPhone.
And speaking of Kurt, an excerpt from his book, In the Sun's House, is reprinted in the latest issue of "Terrain." The chapter is called, "The Road to Crownpoint," and the illustration accompanying it is by...me.
Check it out.
