The November seed scattering needs done but the light frost we had did not take out things that need pulling and Gulf Fritillaries and 3 kinds of Skippers are nectaring on Tithonia that I want to pull to make room. I commenced spading around the daffodil bed where I want to scatter some seeds. Work goes slowly.
What used to take about a day takes many days now. We use more machinery and less brawn.
Hauling limbs is the easy part, all mechanical.
Getting ready to haul limbs takes an extra day.
Weights that weigh 100 pounds each have to come off the
front before the loader goes on.
An adapted shop crane with an electric winch made moving
the weights easier -- first we had to move the crane and battery.
Baccharis, totally useless plant but isn't it pretty?
Behind it is a Chinaberry tree, even more useless, and alien.
My next project is cataloging native grasses. I hate not knowing their names.
We had a little less than one tenth of an inch of rain yesterday -- grateful for every drop. Today's high was 66 degrees, nights are in the 40s for the next couple of days with a slight chance of rain Saturday night.
