Today is cloudy, mild, and calm. 

I fed the birds.  Earlier I saw two brown thrashers in a fight display.  They jumped around, pecked at each other, bobbed their heads, spread their wings and tails.  It was very interesting to watch.

I dug four holes to plant sunchokes in the prairie garden. 

EDIT 4/16/20: I planted the first batch of sunchokes.  I had ordered four tubers each of two types.  What I got in the first package was 2 large tubers, 2 medium tubers, and 5 tiny ones.  I am pleased.  :D

EDIT 4/16/20: I put up a marker stake for the sunchokes, then trimmed brush in the prairie garden.

EDIT 4/16/20: I cut brush in the orchard.
