I’m still nursing a sore back. It’s getting better slowly.
I decided to do a little work on this part of the yard that is getting overgrown. I need to cut out the blackberry vines and the brush that is coming up. Most of the brush is wild plum trees that have started from seeds, that are not needed.
A little at a time
The plan was to just cut a little at a time on and off throughout the day to save my back.. So I worked on clearing that throughout the day. Of course that took a lot of chair hopping and some naps.
Brush pile stays
Chickens automatic door
Late in the day the chickens went to roost. See that gallon paint can. That’s a weight to open the outside door in the morning when the chickens get up they can step on the trigger and the outside door will open and let them out to graze.
Getting to the weeds early
I’m a late night person and don’t get up early enough to let them out early so they can feed. And when I do get up and let them out I feed them so they don’t eat as many weeds as are growing right now as they are already full from the feed I feed them and I’d rather they eat the weeds so I don’t have to feed them as much.
I’ve used this method before and it works pretty good to do the job.
The wind was blowing pretty good today and continued in the evening but it was still a fairly pleasant day.
