Burn Day

There is a real question as to how we should dispose of waste. Reasonable people disagree. In the question of landfill or burning, we have chosen to burn. We do it twice a year -- once in the spring and once in the fall. In this picture you can see we wait until our 14-acre field downwind is plowed and freshly turned over. Beyond the field is several miles of uninhabited land with drumlin hills and farm land. We stand ready with the tractor and its large bucket to move in and rearrange any problem areas.

Here you can see the extensive pile of trees and shrubs that constitute our burn pile. In our township we are allowed to burn such material as long as it comes from our property.
The horses are ever alert to any changes to their surroundings. Although they are several hundred yards away from the fire, they are interested and watchful!
Inspector Suki, on the other hand, could care less, and here she investigates a couple of cement blocks to determine future use. She has also turned into a successful hunter and may be hoping this is a big mouse hole!
