We had to caulk each seam between two boards and around each window. Tyler, Andrew and I spent three hours doing it on Saturday and Tyler and Andrew spent about 4 hours on Monday. The boys got to be quite good at it.
Just some of the debris going to the burn pile!

Last Saturday Tyler and Dad took out the rhodedendron bushes around the house. The former owners had about 12 rhodendrons planted along two sides of the perimeter of our yard. We had decided to take them out as it took a lot of hours to weed in between them. Herbicides are not an option on our farm! The previous owners used them and we are still feeling the effects five years later. While we normally would not complain about no weeds it is rather disturbing that after five years some flower beds still have no weeds growing.
Hooking the end of the chain onto the tractor bucket.
You can see the rams watching in the background. They really want to be on the other side of the fence. Not because it is greener, but because their lady friends are over there...

Sparks are flying from the grinder.
As Scott's face show, this is rather an intense activity.
The third out of ten cuts to be completed.
