For WEEKS I have been itchy and waiting impatiently to get out into my yard and burn grass. Yes, I get overly excited to light my yard on fire. This year I had alot of motivation to do it, because we are putting in a garden and hopefully a coop for the chickens!! I am not going down without a fight about those chickens and I will do just about anything to get them.
So why burn grass? I'm not exactly sure, I was always told that we burn the old tall grass so that the new green grass could come up easier. This year we also did it so that we could clear the space, save from mowing through thick dead grass and could easily see the branches and thrown bushes we need to clear before putting in the garden and coop.
Here are some photos from the process!
|This is the area where the garden will be, can't wait to start clearing thorn bushes and turning soil!|
|Supposedly fire season was over, so we could get a fine, but there were quite a few other families burning their yards as well. I doubt it will be a big problem because we don't live in a heavily wooded area and we had 4 people tending the flames.|

More posts to come as more work gets done!
