Peach Lifting for Skinny Guys

This is where the chain saw chain hit me when it flew off while I was cutting down Dorothy's old peach tree. Abby wasn't too happy when she heard about it, but I think it's frackin' cool.

I have a big hiking trip coming up, and it’s with some of my fitter friends, so I’ve been trying to push myself hard when I work on the patch. Today I…

  • Carried all the peach branches and stumps, which I created when I cut down Dorothy’s oldest peach tree, which was dead, to the brush pile.
  • Mowed the front yard with the push mower.
  • Mowed under the Rose-of-Sharon bushes lining the driveway with the push mower, which is among the most strenuous activities I ever do.
  • Mowed a large portion of the “golf course” on the riding mower.
  • Dug out the “hump” of earth left behind after removing the two dead Rose-of-Sharon with the chain saw last week.
  • Moved the earth, which filled seven wheelbarrows, to a low spot near the garden.
  • Put the chain back on my chain saw – it had flown off when I was cutting down the peach tree.

It was insanely nice weather out, so I had a great time. I want to keep pushing myself as much as possible so I’ll be in decent shape for my trip.

The grass in our pastures, like this in the north forty, is lush and healthy, since unlike last year, we are getting ample rainfall this spring.

  1. Your wound is bad-ass, but where is it on your body? And may we have its dimensions, please?
