Tuesday Yardening
Today is partly sunny, warm, and muggy.

Yesterday I saw a monarch caterpillar on a milkweed plant.  :D

Round One, I fed birds.  Then I picked a bag of mulberries.

At the edge of the field, I found a stone tool.  It's pretty primitive, but it's clever.  This is a modified flake with a cutting edge, and a big notch that permits several different grips.  It's actually a crappy piece of stone with inclusions that made it break unevenly.  But someone saw the potential in it, how to make it useful by taking advantage of those quirks.  So even though it's not a very sophisticated piece, that insight makes it much more effective compared to typical flake tools of the same technological level.  I'm holding a very, very old gizmo.  :D

EDIT 6/18/19: Round Two, I pulled weeds around the forest garden.

EDIT 6/18/19: Round Three, we put a tarp over the firepit.  Also I pulled weeds around the forest garden.

EDIT 6/18/19: Round Four, I raked over some bare spots in the ritual meadow and sowed grass seed there.

Fireflies are coming out, more of them now that it's warm and damp.  :D

As it is getting dark, I'm done for the night.
