Reclaiming the Chicken Yard
Tim made a comment on my last post about all the work we had done. My response was that, in the pictures I posted yesterday, you can't really see all the work we've done. So I took a walk around what used to be part of the chicken yard and took some pictures. The area is a little over a 1/4 acre of land that had almost 400 trees on it. All of them are down or damaged and will have to be cut down.
This shows the progress on uncovering the turkey hutch. Mike did some major log cutting and stacking, so this area is pretty opened up.
Here are a couple of the brush piles a stack of larger branches. The green in the background are downed trees that are outside the chicken yard.
This is just beyond the turkey hutch and to the left.
This is past the hutch heading toward the eastern boundary of the lot.
This is further to the east and just to the left.
And this is to the right.
Another log pile.
Another shot to the right. And yes, that is Heather sitting up on fallen tree cutting off the limbs.
At this point we are still about 20 feet from the eastern boundary - still lots of work to do!
