Time for me to prune mine, too, as well as the sage and the bay
tree. Although, the rosemary still is holding a few blossoms, it, as
well as the sage, is a bit leggy. Cutting back the bay will promote a
flush of tender milder leaves, better suited for culinary use fresh, in
Bay, sage, and parsley are doing well this winter despite the
inattention of this past summer and fall. They are not truly
"freeze-hardy" or evergreen but so far this winter temperature has not
got low enough to threaten them.

i hope this coming cold blast doesn't get down that
far! this morning i woke up and checked the weather
station and it was -13F. i think we've made it up to
about 10 or so by now with the sun being out and it
being calm. the rest of the week has a bump up for a
day or two and then right back to colder again.
Temperatures have been pretty moderate so far this winterno frozen
tomatoes or peas. I'm hoping those behind the front that's headed your
way follow the same pattern. Solid 60 ° on the front porch now
(more-or-less 2PM on Sat, 1-26) really overcast, though. If the clouds
stay, they'll help keep the nighttime temperature up.
I just dial "which tree is next?" Was out today looking and found
several standing dead oaks that need to come out . Look like they'll be
fairly easy to get to with Rusty the Tractor . I recently bought an
electric chain sharpener , my saws have never cut this good before - my
filing fu sucks . Paid for itself (as compared to paying 6 bucks per)
with the first sharpening session .

I bought an electric chain sharpener after a few years of running up to the
hardware to get the chains sharpened a few times a season. As you say, pay
s for itself quickly and makes cutting much easier. I think my new hip has
settled down to where I can do some cutting this year.
Your sig line reminds me of a poster I saw at a gun show a while back:
No trespassing: I have a gun and a backhoe.
