Jim found a place not too far from here where we can actually rent TRACTORS for a whole month at at time! So, since that sounded like a great way to get a lot of blackberry clearing done on some areas of the lot, we did just that. In just two days, Jim has nearly the entire lower garden area cleared of the majority of the vines and saplings (some of which were up to 8 feet high.) In another day or so, we should have the whole area ready to measure and begin to mark out for the garden and orchard. Here are some before and after pictures…
See what I mean?
