Avocado tree planting
I noticed I had a little avocado tree seedling that came up under my big avocado tree.
Planted and protected
It seemed like a good idea to plant it in it’s own spot by the big avocado tree so I prepped the ground for it and got some fence wire to go around it to protect it from the chickens.
Ride on the Talking Trees Trail
After that I was out of energy so I napped and took it easy until late afternoon when I got it going for a quad runner ride through the redwood forest. I wanted to check out the Talking Trees Trail to see how it faired through the big storm that dropped 15 inches on us overnight.
I checked the gas and took off up the trail at a leisurely pace. Everything was nice and clean and lush after the rain.
I rode up through here.
And down through here on the trail throwing things off the trail that had fallen in the winds.
Like these limbs that fell off a tree that I had to stop and remove to pass on by.
I stopped here for a break and to sit and enjoy the forest for a bit. It’s real peaceful in this spot.
I stopped here at the waterfall but there wasn’t much water in the falls yet.
I made it to the end of the trail and continued up this road and had to stop and remove these small branches to get by.
Once past that one I ran into this one that was too big for me to move so I turned around and went another way.
There were quite a few trees down on the road so I had to turn around often.
I made it up to our spring and had a drink of water and checked it’s flow rate. Almost two gallons a minute up a little over a gallon after the big storm for a total of just under two gallons a minute.
I continued up that road to the top of the hill where I parked and enjoyed a break on the log rounds for a bit.
I’d left a tool on the Talking Trees trail so I headed back over there and went down it to pick up the tool.
Damned up creek
From there I headed towards home but got stopped by this damned up creek that was a bit deep for the quad runner to cross without me getting real wet and possibly killing the machine in the middle.
So I turned around and went another way.
Cleaned this culvert of debris
I stopped at this culvert to clear the debris to help keep it from getting plugged up during the next storm.
End of the day
By the time I got home it was 6:30 and I was tired out from all the work so I rested up a bit before going out and shutting the chickens in for the night.
