As I promised, I went to work yesterday morning cutting down the many elm trees north of our garage and inside our backyard. I even went to one of our extra lots and shaped up an elm shrub so that he can grow upwards to become a shade tree. By doing this, it will be much easier to mow around it also.
As I cut down one tree after another, I stacked them out by our driveway. By this weekend, Stan and I plan on hauling all of them to the junkyard.
I am pleased with the work that I finished yesterday. Unfortunately, all of the heaving and hoeing caused me to mess my back up again. Oh, well. I accomplished what I set out to do. Stan is now able to check off another of the chores he had left to do.
