We had a good turnout for Christmas Eve, on a damp morning with minimal wind. It took considerable effort to get a fire going. A little help from the leaf-blower kept it cookin' throughout.
We hit the trifecta; honeysuckle, barberry, and multi-flora. Some of the latter were quite large and feisty, though they eventually succumbed and were oxidized with their friends and co-conspirators.
Thanks to first-time volunteers Yaraly, Alex, and Allison for joining us!
The snow cover we had through much of December was obliterated by the evening rain Christmas Day, and by Wednesday the ground was drying out. This made it a good day for brush-cutting and we did a lot of that, way back in our southeast corner of Paddock. Bob and Chris broke through to 119th Street, and next week we will continue in that area.
