Happy New Year!

Started the New Year with an unseasonably warm day – absolutely perfect!  Lars and Tina spent all morning cleaning up the underbrush and dead wood from a fallen tree around the fence facing the road.  It took about 4 hours to haul all the vegetative matter to the compost pile and the dead wood to the “burning” pile – but it was worth it!   Should have had a “before and after” photo, but here is the cleaned up view.

We had spent the last day of 2010 by doing some major outside clean-up work as well, burned the brush pile that had accumulated for the last two months, pulled out all the temporary irrigation hoses from the vegetable garden, removed the old brush, rocks and dirt piles around the goat pen and got started cleaning out the bottom of the barn!
