When the Fruitless Mulberry was cut down a year ago, the remaining roots started to wither and unlevel the underground. So as I worked on pulling up the Mock Orange root ball, Dot sat in the shade and began to pull up roots.

Pulling Up Roots

It’s exciting to find actual soil mixing up as well; that will make planting next year so much easier for both myself and the new plants.

As one led to another, she was careful to not dissect the largest root; but rather keep it intact until the end of the day. The little dried up feeder roots were easily pulled, but the thicker ones took some effort.

I can’t wait to get out there and rake the ground level again. And then work on another section of the yard.

And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
