Burn, Baby, Burn
We have a LOT of compostable matter from the gardens and not many places to put it. R thought he might try to burn the pea vines I'd rolled up and stacked in the front garden earlier this summer. As predicted, they are still too damp to burn well.
The remaining peas and their pods snapped and popped loudly as the vines burned. Peas were whizzing through the air. Lots of thick smoke, too. Quite entertaining. The poor man's fireworks!
Cutting back the lilac bush...
Piles of branches from the lilc bush and a crab apple tree. The birds will enjoy hanging out in them this winter!
