The War Against Cottonwoods


has begun.  My husband, step-son and our neighbor/tree guy came yesterday and took down our cottonwoods.  Here is our tree guy climbing one of the trees.

We have a lot of work ahead of us clearing up the giant mess.  It will be a while before the donkeys have their pen back.  Plus there still is debris from the barn restoration that needs cleaning up.

  1. That goat is super adorable. Around here we are plagued by sumacs, which I’ve heard goats actually eat? That’s a whole lot of fire wood there.
