More mowing today, and if I'm smart, I'll pick up all of the hoses that are around the edge of the house in the front yard - I manage to miss them with the height set on my mower, but I'll have a friend mow a couple of times later this month and he has a riding mower that seems to cut shorter. I'd rather not declutter my pocketbook buying new hoses for summer.

It's time to assemble a new compost bin/enclosure that is dog-proof. Easier said than done. On Pinterest I see one assembled with pallets, and over the years I've had a few pallets, but finding four that are roughly the same size that aren't contaminated by something that soaked into them - I'll keep my eye on the trash this week. Pallet compost bin would go up quickly and I could build a chicken wire top to keep the pup out of it. The other thing I could have used is old fence panels cut to size, but I got rid of those and don't anticipate taking apart more fence until spring. I suppose I could build my own cut-down fence panels. Treated lumber cross-members and cedar pickets. Hmmm. That might be a more reliable way to do it than wait for pallets.
