The gap in the trees pictured below may not seem like much to you, but multiply it by 10 for the various gaps in our tree break, and you'll understand how startling it is to have such a gap after six months without it. James and Nathan took out our diseased pine trees, adding them to our ever-increasing burn pile.
On Saturday, the men were finally free and the weather cooperative enough to call for a burn permit. And burn they did!
We even took care of the Christmas tree!
The pile burned down further, and the men were diligent in supervision, so there are only two stumps left.
Until next time, remember, this is not paradise. It's Pugatory Ranch.
