The privet has been tamed, thanks to the SO and my new loppers.
See the power lines? Those were in jeopardy last winter during an ice storm. And see the grassless wasteland below? The privet had formed an arch across to the chain link fence which just about killed the grass.
Now we just need to figure out what to do with the brush pile.
The neighbor I catsit for mentioned something about buying a chipper. If he doesn't, I may rent one. That will be a new experience.
Oh, my. What do we have here?
Why, it's the first tomato of the season, ready to eat on the fourth of July.
It will go well with my Advil tonight.
