Let there be light

While most of the holiday weekend was consumed in food-and-drink related revelry, we did manage to push the orchard project forward a bit.  After putting a new roof on the north side of the eastside workshop on Saturday morning, we spent a couple hours in the afternoon felling the last three pines in the area to the south of the orchard to let light in.  We also extracted some saw logs from the piles of brush with peavies (it’s too wet in there for machinery after the recent rains), and cleared out some scrubby growth so we could pull a chipper into the area where we’ve been working.  In this era of global warming, burning big piles of brush seems like dubious behavior, and the soil can always use more organic matter.  I’ll go and update the to-do list to reflect recent progress and plans…
