Clean, park-like pasture

With our new tractor, and with Ruben, who knows what he is doing, the garden pasture (i.e. all that stuff waiting to be turned into garden beds) is being trimmed!  This is what Mama has been trying to do little by little with a weed-whacker, two hours at a time.  Ruben did a months worth of work in a few hours.  While it might not look like much, it is a big deal. It not only looks spiffy it helps control weeds, is easier to traverse when wet, lets us control ants better, avoid snakes, and mulch trees. Did we mention it looks gorgeous?

Ruben is able to get in-between the small staked trees with the tractor so all that is left is to walk around and trim at the base.  Who knows, maybe one day we will have a manicured lawn.
