The weekend at Mrs. B’s

Posted on: April 5, 2009

This afternoon was spent working on getting some of the trees cleared away from Mrs. B’s Water Tank

If you look at the picture below, you can see that there are all kinds of trees in this little area where the water tank is.

This next picture is the end result (I got to the point to where I couldn’t do much with the other trees because they have poison ivy in them)

Most of the damage was done with bypass lopers. Although there was a sledge hammer and crowbar involved to remove the wooden casing around the steel pipe for the gate – there’s a tree blocking the gate and the crowbar was the only way to get that sucker so we could lift the gate off. It was too windy to lumberjack and get out the either the of chainsaws. Not to mention that I don’t feel comfortable running a chainsaw without R being around – especially when it involves his mom. But there’s already a big difference in the amount of light that reaches the far end of the garden.

But even with the lumberjacking. I did get time for pictures this weekend.

[Mrs. B grows some serious Kohlorabi there was one that was bigger than a grapefruit and it wasn’t woody at all).
