Feel the Burn

March 29th was a beautiful day for a burn!  We had a gentle north wind and low humidity, so we called the fire department and took the torches to the area around the pollinator planting site.   We got a nice burn through the tree line leading back to the sand hill - lots of burdock and brambles were cleared, keeping weeds down, but also clearing the way so we can get equipment back to clear it out (so we can get more equipment back to plant).   There is a tree island that is in the middle of the proposed restoration area (not technically part of the NRCS project, but it will get attention just the same.  We burned dried grasses around the edge of the wood lot, and targeted spots of reed canary grass that had crept in.
