I am almost finished with the grading, but I'll confess I took a little break from it today to spruce up the garden a tad. The manager for the South Plains Food Bank's GRUB farm was coming over to check out a chipper/shredder (seen below next to a pile of my neighbors' leaves) I am sort of donating to them and I wanted the garden to look its best. (Well, as best it can look in the dead of winter.) The chipper/shredder "donation" thing is all a bit complicated, but I'll explain it in an upcoming post. I promise that it will be a heartwarming-ish story, as befitting the season of giving.
In the meantime, I am knackered tonight, so I think I'll put the red pen aside and take up some light reading in the form of a book called, The Great Plains During World War II.
