Trimming and hauling brush
I trimmed a lot of plum trees yesterday and they made a big mess of brush that needed to be hauled to the brush pile across the yard.
I did some more trimming today so the sun can get to the cherry trees.

Looking for mulberries
After that and a few breaks I moved the ladder over to the mulberry tree so I could get up in the tree and eat some berries. Most of the berries were still red and not ripe and black but it won’t be long before they all turn ripe.
Most people only know the prune in it’s dry state as that’s what you can get in stores as the fresh ones don’t ship well. Too bad as the fresh ones are very good.
Finishing up the brush
It didn’t take long before I had all the brush piled up in a big pile. Some might say the big pile of brush is a fire hazard, but I say it’s a good habitat pile and as the brush breaks down it makes some real nice black dirt.
It took me all day to get that brush moved. I just kept at it and slowly it got done.
