Oh Hi there,

Been a while.

Got a day in the shovel today starting to clean up some new land we picked up. What a mess! Garbage and just crap all around the house. Never seen anything like it. Barn is in the way and coming down, 4 fence lines and it will be all one field ready to be tiled.


My rides for the day


For years driving by this property we assumed the barn was gone, but after some work removing Manitoba Maples that had completely overgrown the entire area it was revealed


And then it poured so I went back to the shop


But then it stopped so back at it. I really miss working by myself




Three rock truck loads of junk and brush out of that small area. And that's after we picked all the non burning garbage out already!




Beats the heck out of tracking or pushing it all to the burn pile. New rules in the municipality really limit how close to buildings burning can take place!




Not sure if the pine will stay or not, Need to figure out where the severance will be. A days work really opens up the place! Not quite as rat hole like anymore




It was a big barn back in its day!








Not sure when I'll get to play again, Tomorrow heading 500km west with a load of cattle and if the weather improves I'll be back into the corn spraying fungicide

Questions or comments welcome.

Warren

Is that the burn pile right by that old barn? Guess if so that means the old barn is coming down to fuel the fire.

Why don't you grind it up and compost it?

There are some contractors in the area running big chippers. They work "quickly" but generally just make big messes.

Wood chips require huge amounts of nitrogen to decompose. A process that takes years and several crop failures.

The other big issue with the chippers is they only destroy the wood about 12-16 inches deep. Tree roots and stumps go deeper. When it's wet they only average about 6-10 inches deep. This is a huge issue when it comes time to tile the field you are left with a lot of stumps that are either chipped too shallow, or simply buried. Tile drainage contractors are almost to the point of refusing to do jobs on chipped land unless each run is raked out with an excavator ahead of the plow.

We have the equipment and labour to stump and burn so that's the way we do it.
