Buried Treasure

I realize it has been awhile since I have posted any progress information.  Truth be told, we took a vacation and escaped to Florida for a nice little break.  It is a slow adjustment from vacation mode to real life and we are slowly getting back into the project zone.

April was burn month and we managed to squeeze in four burn days.  Every year we plan to reclaim a bit more of the yard and battle the poison ivy and brambles.  We have uncovered some trash dumps where a previous owner apparently disposed of many plastic bags full of cat litter.  We have also found broken milk bottles, metal fencing, black trash bags, a rusty fan, metal pipes, and various other treasures.

When the garage came down they also buried it in the yard, windows and all.  Every time it rains, pieces of glass come to the surface.  I am not sure what we are going to do about that, but for now we have enough other projects on our hands to worry about...

It's May and burning season is now over. We are turning back to the bathroom.  Here are some photographs on the progress we are making with the yard.
