Check out my new garden space. What do you notice? Yes, smaller than the last garden space, but still a fairly nice space. (tangent: see the fence we put up? I am very proud of that fence. It's purpose is to keep out the bunnies in our yard. At first, there were two [bunnies, not fences] ...now there are two big ones, and four little baby ones. They're multiplying like. . . . .nevermind) Yes, the fence is nice, but I want you to notice that little tree growing in the middle of my garden. The nerve of that tree! To grow where it's not wanted! *tsk! tsk!* this won't do.
The Hubby and I have been trying to clear out a time to fell this tree together. (aka. I'll hold the tools he's not using while he works.) But weeks are passing. The garden needs to be planted. So today I decided to man up and take care of it myself while he was at work.
All we have is a super dull ax. But, it workedbetter than my teeth, so I gave it a go. I found it useful (here's a tip for all you future lumber jacks) to swing and hit the tree at an angle, instead of straight on. And 20 minutes work with a dull ax brought about this result:
There! *wiping dust off of hands* Now I can plant my garden!
