The busted belly mower belt comes in tomorrow, so I thought I’d get some non-mowing working done.
I took the chainsaw to somesaplings that were growing along the edge of the pond. Biggest was about 5″ across; not big. But they were those spiny Locust Tree bastages and they were on the incline leading down to the pond.
I wrapped a tow strap around them and dragged them to the site of a future burn.
My confidence increased, I started pulling some large limbs out of the field. I think they were cut down by the power folks. Just guessing, as I didn’t live here yet when that happened. The little orange beast happily dragged the limbs to (and onto) the pile I started before. There are more big limbs hidden in the tall grass but I was tired enough from other work that I would start making mistakes.
My clutchwork and use of the controls is greatly improved. I did try to drive off with the parking brakes set, though. :-0
