paths and mowings on the farm i been doing

Postby nadx » Tue Jun 30, 2020 8:06 am

some of these were really overgrown, and the bugs are terrible this time of year, but here is a path i been working on each time,,,,
path down to "little creek" south side of the farm,,,,,most paths have been tackled with clippers, weedeater and mower, bringing the ax next time...

this path is really neat as it make a big circle around the top part of the farm, cutting through old pines, and lots of timber areas

this path takes you north to the other creek on the north border:

this area needs work, used to be able to drive a tractor all the way to the creek, but we just haven't kept up with the mowing

finally here is flat creek, north side of the farm (my nephew is fishing)

a bit more background.....this was my grandparents farm,,,,,at one time they had huge strawberry patches, people in the 30 mile radius would come pick there own berries,,,,,that was in the 70-early 80's

eventually, they had to quit doing so much work, that was already their retirement 'fun'

have mentioned this place is before 86 acres of beauty though

I wanted to see your photos. Maybe my laptop needs an updated browser. I can't get the pictures to come up. I get imgur.com, but no pictures. A person can get really attached to grandparents and the homeplace.

I got the pictures OK. Thanks for sharing them. I love little wooded paths like these. I try to keep such paths open in my woods, just wide enough to get my old 8N between the trees.

Thanks for your description and pictures. Beautiful place. But I can see why you have a lot of work to do.

Must be great for friends and family to visit.

Take care. :D

Like you, I've got trails all over my property (33+ acres) for the wife to walk the little fur kids on. :)

Of course, I have a lot of open fields, (besides the acre or so fenced, middle pic) for them to romp in too. :) :)

Looking forward to making pathways at our place. Like to be able to stroll down to the little stream with ease.
That is, after I get done clearing the few acres Aunt Terr wants done so she can get a pond put in!
The list never seems to shorten.

Thanks all and sun fighter for sharing those pics of your 40 acres. Really nice too.
Yes was at our place yesterday working the paths again.
I'm making more progress. Another 150 feet and I'll be at the little creek on the south side. One thing I hope I dont run into is a copperhead or a rattle snake :o .

Nephew got bit 10 years ago and had to be lifeflighted from sedalia mo to Columbia mo for the antivenom.

Also I am getting eaten alive by bugs still while doing this. Do u guys think OFF works?

Not much you can do about the bugs. Ticks and chiggers will get you no matter what. :( whatever bug repellent has the most deet in it will help against ticks. Chiggers however don't seem to be bothered by anything I throw at them. Best thing to do with chiggers is wipe the bitten area down with rubbing alcohol. It'll sting a pinch, but, wipes them out. I notice the itching goes away almost immediately.
