Abandoned

Usually, when I do my morning rounds, I stick to the inner yard and the garage.  Every now and then, though, I go farther afield and check on the septic field and the sheds in the outer yard. Today was one of those days, and it took me past the old Farm Hand tractor that's … Continue reading Abandoned

Clean up: spruce grove fence line, more progress, part two

After working my way through the first section, I realized the stuff I'd cleared away had hidden quite a bit.  So here are some before photos of the next section.

Clean up: spruce grove fence line, more progress, part one

This northern row of spruce trees … Continue reading Clean up: spruce grove perimeter, down the line

Clean up: spruce grove perimeter, start

I got a few hours work on the spruce grove this morning/afternoon, and plan to head out again, but here's progress so far! I've started at the north west corner, where the stone cross is. This is more or less what we see out of our living room window.  I went farther into the underbrush … Continue reading Clean up: spruce grove perimeter, start
