Terry left to rake the corners of the alfalfa field and was going to bale, but then heavy mist came joined the stiff northwest winds.
This afternoon we planted dogwood bushes. The SCS had extra trees/bushes and Terry purchased 50 dogwoods. We put some in bare places on the north edge of the north shelter belt. While we were out there, we noticed a bunch of maple trees growing in the waterway, so Terry and Eddie dug those out. We took them and the rest of the dogwoods out to the slough and planted them along the east side. That took us the rest of the day, and all of us were definitely ready to STOP. It wouldn't have been quite the ordeal that it was if we'd have been doing it a couple of months ago. The grass and weeds are very tall now and it's hard to get through the sod to dig a decent hole and then fill it in again.
Eddie grilled pork loin for supper and then we watched the movie- A Man Called Ove. We all enjoyed it, but it was in Swedish or something, so we had to watch the words at the bottom of the screen.
Tomorrow morning we'll take Eddie back to Lake Shetek where someone will be waiting to pick Pearl and Joe up from camp.
Eddie found this red-winged blackbird nest where we were planting maples and dogwoods by the slough.
