This morning was all about our old friend honeysuckle. We cut and stacked piles in the middle of the prairie - there was insufficient wind for burning - and cleared the entire area targeted. We were most productive!
Thanks to new volunteer Rebecca, to Jackie Grom from FPCC for running the day (and, with Diana, doing the herbiciding), and to Doug who was tearing it up on brush-cutter.
