Today's Yardening: Firebuilding

It's a beautiful spring day here in central Illinois.  We picked up a bunch of large branches and small trees, cut them down to smaller bits, and piled up the beginning of a bonfire in the firepit in the ritual meadow.

If you have spent the winter mostly indoors, remember to ramp up slowly when beginning yardwork outdoors in spring.  (If you spent the winter shoveling snow, you should be fine.)  Work as far as you feel comfortable.  Push just a little farther.  Then stop for the day.  I have a separate post on preventing and caring for blisters.
