All of that wonderful mushroom media going up in smoke.... :hit
I have a couple of standing dead oaks. You want ‘em? Bring truck and trailer. You got a large tractor or heavy duty chain hoist so you can unload ‘em? The are kinda big….. ok they are huge. Probably too big.

Bulldozer coming next week. There might be smaller ones in the fence rows. There’s another enormous one leaning towards the road I want gone.

Road trip? 😀😀😀😀😀😀

I started outside at 8:30. I started other building a fire on a big stump, it’s not tall, but it’s 3-4 feet across and it’s in my way. It is smoldering with a deep hole in the middle now.

I loaded the bucket on my tractor. Same as yesterday, push pile to loosen up the wood from the briars, vines and grass. Lower bucket, put tractor in neutral, throttle down, get off, load wood in bucket, get back on tractor, raise bucket, throttle up, put in medium speed, go dump on fire.

Neighbor Chase came over at 9:30 with his much bigger tractor. He pushed up the fire and pushed several big chunks that my tractor couldn’t move. Just too big and heavy for Marigold! Then he loaded more big chunks and dumped on the fire.

The pile is still burning, I sure hope the stump is burnt down and gone.

I’m so glad to have this done. I thought it would take 3 days, did it in 2. I’m tired. My back is sore, arms are sore, neck is sore, my feel good hurts! Hahaha!

This is the fire now, took from my porch.
Good night burn pile.
