Goodbye Brush Pile

burning brush

When you clear land the result is brush. Since we’re located in the woods we have Lots of Brush. Last fall Paul killed tree after tree clearing land for a vegetable patch. The trees kept us warm over the winter as fuel for the wood boiler. But we’ve spent the entire winter looking at a massive pile of brush.

The other day we had great weather and little wind so we had ourselves a bonfire with marshmallows and smores. We’ve still got a few more trees to fell, but ridding the garden plot of that massive pile gives me hope.
