When we acquired our property, there were rows of large boulders and rocks in the middle of what woold be a wonderful field to romp around in. I mean it already is a great place for that, but I plan on making it that way without the boulders in the middle of it all! It could make for a great little field for a few horses. I always dreamed of having a horse… who knows this may be the opportunity to make another dream come true!
I moved a few rocks… but they tested the strength of my machine. It’s a 1973 John Deere, and I didn’t want to push it too hard. It’s still pretty new to me:
I thought I could push some of the bigger rocks over round logs (like ancient Egyptian), but the ground must have been too soft, the logs sunk down a few inches. It’s been cold enough for a proper winter and then, out of nowhere we got some beautiful spring-like days… it must have defrosted the ground, and even the ground seems dry!
It did not work, but at least I got a bunch of vitamine D hanging out in the sun… I will try again when I have more time, and I will push or pull with the tractor, maybe with a friend who can add a round log when needed so we can keep moving.
The next thing is to figure out something to do with these boulders!
