Decimated Yard

While the weather was still warm and dry, M and I butchered our yard. There were 8 walnut trees growing along the yard's perimeter and, not wanting to deal with nuts and the tannin in the husks, we decided to do away with them. M sawed while I lopped the trees and branches. We finished the task in time for the last day of brush pick up and now have to plan what we would like to plant for next year.

The burrs had the last laugh with M as they were stuck in his hair

Once we cleared out the plants we didn't want, we found this stump!

Decimated yard. We realized we didn't have rakes so we left to go buy some.
