a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Work Continues...

Oh, no, not more brush piles!!!  I am on a roll!  The weather has been perfect for trimming.  I think I have pulled some twenty foot briers out of trees.  I have seen ground I have not seen in years.  Life is good.  I am seeing progress.
And one more pile almost gone.
Hubby had a great idea.
Far better than me carrying arm loads at a time.
Two piles gone.
Many more to go.

Jeepers, I had thought the trimming was all done, but then I see you have more. I guess on the farm there is always something to trip, especially with your acreage, eh. Yep, I even see the TM - great job for him to just push everything to the burn pile. Have a wonderful day - hugz to Marcy n Family :)

Now to keep that ground clear!

Wow y'all work so very very hard!! Hard work pays off. I can't wait to see what it all looks like after everything's done :)

hooray for you!

Just when you think you've got the pruning under control, out pops another bunch to do. Having charge of land is a never ending job. xoxo

Sandy said...

Well done my friend!!! Do you charge by the hour :-)
I have all kind of trees that need clipping, chopping, and burned.

Linda Kay said...

This certainly looks like a never-ending job. However, I'm sure it will be much easier when you get it all under control with grass growing, etc. You really wear me out just looking at the hard work.

Sandra said...

i can't believe you are still hacking back the brush.. you go girl until you drop, anyway... great idea to let hubby push that brush where it needs to be...

A Quiet Corner said...

Yeah for hubby being thoughtful!!!!...:)JP

A job well done. Too bad it isn't contagious. I have lots of that to do too, but I keep sitting in front of my sewing machine watching the needle do all the work.

When I do spend time outside it is usually surveying the damage done by the deer to my gardens or taking pictures of the fawns romping around. There has been a little weed-pulling, but not enough to notice. :-)

Hasn't this run of weather been amazing?

Mama Zen said...

When you're done, you can start on mine!

Susan Kane said...

Your hubby has a great solution. Brush and briers are a curse in every part of the country.

You are doing a great job of getting through it all.

Facing a similar job on a smaller scale. Oh for a front end loader.

Michaele said...

I can imagine how much satisfaction you are getting from your work.

Liza said...

We can prune all we want around here, but we can never beat it. And, we are only allowed to burn from January to May. We collect quite a lot in between. I love our outdoor winter fires.

Awesome, Gail. You are doing an amazing job!
Be careful and take care! ♥
