Yard Work

I spent last week in Austin, TX, for work, so not a lot of progress was made on the property. But, I was home for the weekend, and before I got horribly, miserably sick on Saturday night, Dad came up and we made a small dent in the Neutral Zone scotch broom infestation.

A few hours work and a few nice piles of uprooted scotch broom!

This tree was dead – so dead that when I pulled blackberry vines from it’s upper branches, the entire trunk started to sway! The two of us were able to just push the tree down on it’s own. Hello, firewood!

We took a break and took a walk, exploring the boundaries of the property beyond the road to the west. Here’s a different view of the land, from the hill by the road on the west side.
