Digging Drainage

After a bit of rain a week or so ago, the soil is perfect for digging, not too dry and hard, and not heavy with moisture. So given that rain is in the forecast for Monday, I decided I'd best work at clearing out the drainage ditch behind my house. It's not deep, just enough to carry off the moisture draining down the hill so it doesn't run against the foundation. But over the last couple years it has filled in. It's a pleasant autumn task, simple, mindless, and I can listen to the chickadees chatter.
