|Hard at work blazing a trail onto our property|
What an exciting weekend! We had our 3 acres of land staked and this has been our first opportunity to actually access the land by cutting a trail through the dense underbrush with a machete, a shovel and a pair of loppers. The vegetation is thick and lush but fortunately is accessible with a bit of hard work. Dreadknot went ahead with the machete to cut a trail and I followed on behind with the loppers, trimming back branches that stuck out into the trail.
Enjoy our drone video of our land in the raw, only a trail is visible.
Beautiful ferns abound as well as the invasive mountain strawberry guava which are delicious but pose an ecological threat to indigenous forests as it crowds out the other plant species. So we'll have to work hard on curbing the spread of this plant, originally brought to Hawaii from Brazil.
Next step is grading the driveway and house pad. Tune in again to see our progress.
Dream it. See it. Be it.
