Here is an example of some of the work associated with living at my place A couple of weeks ago I put the bush hog on the tractor (not an easy job for a 70-year old woman) and mowed down the decorative grass the runs along the road in front of my house. After mowing, it is really necessary to burn the remaining mess.
I got that job accomplished this afternoon. Last year I didn't mow it down and when the snow comes the tall grass works like a fence. It stops the snow and makes impassable drifts. I think my neighbors with be happy when the smoke clears.
