I had to re-order my to-do list. No mulching until the piles of branches were off of the lawn. And no stretching electrical cords to holiday lights until the mulching is finished. So, the branches are now out of the way, and I heaped into the compost the various garden plants that died with the freeze. Tomorrow afternoon I'll mulch, and then see about putting out the lights. I'm only doing one tree in the yard, and I'll do some lights on the porch, and those strings are ready to go.

I dug a hole in the oldest compost heap (it's ready to use, but I won't need it till spring) and pour in the contents of one of my driveway bins. That's where I drop the table scraps (veggie only) and let it break down so much that it doesn't interest the dogs. I rotate between one bin breaking down and one that I'm filling. It means I put a lot less trash at the curb and these good nutrients stay in the yard.

Tonight, peppers. Lots of peppers need to be cut up and put in the freezer. The laundry is about finished, so I can focus on the kitchen work and not have to go back and forth.
