[Ravensfort] site work update

Fri Aug 11 08:45:11 PDT 2006

Couple of additions.

Post hole diggers and a temper

If you got it.... 

A pruning lopper....

That's like the extra large version of pruning shears.  I've been
clearing brush all summer.  Loppers are the absolute best way to cut
perssimmon stobs and wild lemons.  Anything up to about 2".  Chopping is
kinda dangerous, but will work.  With the shears, you can easily snip
them right at the ground.  Since this is a recurrent task, it might be
worth considering the purchase of a Baronial pair.  Seems like they were
$20 at Home Depot.  You'll see what I'm talking about and how well it
works on Saturday.

 This brings up an issue that is near and dear to us. Safety. When we
are working on our site, we need to be careful, a slip with a chainsaw
or axe and you are in a world of hurt. Not to mention poisonous snakes
and spiders. Please be careful out there, an injury out there without
somebody to help could have fatal results, and none of us want a trip to
the emergency room.

We will need shovels and rakes, chainsaws and possibly an axe. We will
need rope or chain, and cleaning materials for the kitchen. We will need
some bleach and the tools to uproot those persimmons. Anyone know what
has worked well in the past? We need a posthole digger to reset some
list field posts. Any one have any ideas as to what I've missed? I look
forwards to seeing you out for site preparation.
