Clearing Buckthorn

This weekend we spent 2 1/2 hours clearing out any new (and 3 rather large) buckthorns from our forest. This is all that is left.

We dug out hundreds of plants. The entire family was able to help. I dug the small plants and our children brought the plants to the fire pit. My husband chopped out the larger plants, worked on some erosion control, and lit the fire.

All in all, it was a job well done. Who says you have to run on the treadmill to get a quality workout...well sometimes I do, but I was quite happy with today's exercise.
