Orchard Park

This morning I mowed a path in the last weed filled area in the orchard. The old dead weeds were so tall and thick it made pushing the mower almost impossible.
When Pat got home this evening he and Elizabeth drove over the dry dead weeds several times with the big tractor;
Breaking them just enough to make it easier for me to finish the mowing.
The only area left to be cleared now is one edge; this edge will have to be cleared using the weed eater and that is Pat's job.
Keeping the orchard maintained should be petty easy since all the grass and weeds are short and tender.
I love how the orchard looks, it reminds me of a park so I have decided to name it "Orchard Park".

Way to go, we love all the rain we get...but it sure makes it hard to maintain our
'yards' doesn't it. When you live in the country there is no stopping point as to where your
'yard' ends or begins!!

Push mowing that mess? GF, WHY not a rider? You have a lot more "umph" than I have! But it all looks great! Enjoy! (What kind of fruit trees are in your orchard?)
