The Taming Begins

We are finally doing it. Finally taming the beast. Day one: done. Here are some pics of the day-long process. I'm thinking of quitting my job and becoming a tractor driver. It's pretty freaking BA.

You need this here stump removed? Ain't no thang.

Voila! Our newly cleared front yard. We thought we knew excitement when we got all the tree brush chipped and out, but, man, this is somethin' special. A clean slate! (Am I officially an Oregonian now? I'm excited about tractors and stuff)

Now we feel the heat to figure out what the heck our plan is. At this point, game plan is non-existent.

After working his butt off all day on the front yard, our BA excavator, Joe, decided to invest 15 minutes of time in the backyard. Here's what it looked like this morning.

Now begins the process of forging up the blackberry/ivy hill into our yard, from our next door neighbor's yard (I have failed to mention that we have the most AMAZING neighbors ever. They are letting us drive dump trucks and tractors on their lawn. They let us take down part of their fence so that we are able to gain access to our yard. They have been absolutely incredible.).

A little unnerving at times...

Joe plucked the tree that was in the corner as though he was picking up a piece of paper. Have I mentioned that I'm considering a career change?

All in a day's work. More tomorrow. Eeeeeeeeee!!!
