I'm starting to think that this job, like painting the den, will never be done, despite me knowing for a fact that work is done on it every single day.
at any rate, two juniper stumps are now out and one more is most of the
way out, leaving one more after it in this area. After they are gone,
this is where the pond, a drawf weeping maple and a big white rose bush
will go, incorporating lots of the rocks from the back yard. The good
news is I unearthed a sprinkler head near here today, so the water pipes
are already in place.
fun part of the half-dug-out stump in the foreground is that RIGHT next
to it, in the area between the stump and shovel, is another huge wad of
concrete and the remains of a 6x6 redwood post--just like the OTHER one
we found the other day on the other side of the chain link, way over in
front of the chicken run.
Neither of these two match up along
the same lines, so whatever the Hell used to be here, these two posts
& concrete are unconnected. Who the Hell plants a plant RIGHT next
to an old concrete posthole?!
Which means we'll very, very likely find even more of these, like big crappy land mines.
