I got tired of trying to align the gate every time I closed it so it would stay closed. I got the bright idea to hammer a 4″ PVC coupler into the ground and fill it full of gravel. This makes it easier to know where the double gate should be whenever it’s closed and keeps me from having to make a bunch of holes in the ground every time I want to close the gate.
Then I started cutting. I’ve gotten real good at cutting trees down in the backyard and taking the scrub down with it.
I can not stress how much poison oak was in that tallow tree. It’s been gone for 3 weeks now, but I’m still getting over the poison oak on my arms and legs. I know I’m allergic. I took steps to mitigate my exposure. I still got it. That stuff is the worst.
