Brush Hoggin'

A happy way to spend a couple of days....drivin' the tractor, runnin' the brush hog. It's not my favorite job at the nursery but ranks right up there. This is a field with Acer rubrum 'Franksred' aka Red Sunset Red Maples. It hasn't been mowed since early summer.

I start my first pass.

I've got three rows pass each.

I've got 1 row with both passes done. And the rows to either side with one pass each.  I love tasks which show instant results.  You know whether you've done it right or waiting for results....Bam....Instant gratification.

What beautiful property you have! Looks like the colors are really changing in your parts. I love my tractor, serves so many purposes. Sometimes more helpful than my dearest husband;)
