Here Comes The Sun (Again)

May 30, 2013

My neighbor to the east/southeast (whose backyard jungle caught the largest piece of roof back in April) had Bobcats, bucket trucks and stump grinders running full bore yesterday.  One of the two remaining oaks on our line was split and hung up rather dangerously over part of my garden; the crew had arrived to remove it and all the smaller junk trees and bushes that thickly blanketed the property.  We are relieved to see this……
What this means is virtually all of the back 2/3s of my yard is now full sun whereas a year ago there was enough shade to prohibit utilizing a good part of this space.
Time to review the long term overall layout again.

A job I would not want:


The tall tree to the right and most of the lower mass to the left (the hanging split half of the damaged tree) are gone this morning.

    If shipping were not an issue, I would take that Oak for my woodstove Bruce. Full sun….ah…
    My tomatillo volunteers up here in the great white north are loving full sun

    That was some good sawmill wood too; 20 ft straight up with no branches for a good and 3ft thick without a blemish in the grain.
