Slog work

Today we had to get rid of all the branches that we cut down to make space for the first bed.

First our son sawed the big branches into firewood sized pieces, then I cut the other smaller branches into single sticks. Thereafter we all took turns feeding and ancient rusty shredder the small branches and leaves. The shredded material has formed the beginnings of a second compost heap. The firewood is now stacked and ready for winter.

This was really a slog job, totally unejoyable and very noisy...but it's done!
