House Painting, Tomatillos and Other Stuff..

painted (cut and trim) everything low enough to do from the ground..


Chinook plant is making a comeback after already being this tall and nicely trimmed down to one main shoot. Trimming all the new growth off that plant almost every other day just to keep all the energy into production of flowers and roots instead of other shoots.
