We have already cleared out the north pasture side and as you look at this picture, the inner circle of trees to the left will be cleared out and that will be planted in grass for a picnic area. There is an old field fence past those trees then another grove of trees so we will still have lots of seclusion.
We salvaged the logs for fence posts and the brush was moved up to our brush pile in the pasture for burning this winter.
I am all for equal opportunity and like to see the women folk get a chance to do their fair share of the labor!!
So far, just with what we have cleared we loaded about 5 loads of brush.
I will save you the trouble and just call this picture "Beauty and the Beast"
It already looks better. The shed and windmill will be to the left out of the picture and the deck and dock will be right in the center of this picture.
Brush hauled, logs loaded and done for the day
We will be using these for fence posts. They call them red cedars here but they are actually a type of juniper and are of the cypress family but they are extremely rot resistent. More updates as we progress.
