Burning the Ditches



Smoke travels a long way in our valley. So not to alarm our neighboring farms, we first call the Sheriff.



We have to time the burning just right. Before the ground-nesting birds build their nests. The wind has to be just right and come from the south.




Burning weeds and underbrush is a very efficient way to clean an otherwise wild area.




It only takes a few days and the burned area is emerald green and ready for the birds and countless other little creatures to take up residence.
