Last fall when the tree trimmer came and topped all of my willows, they ground up all the small and medium-sized branches into wood chips. They normally just haul the chips to the dump, but that seemed wasteful to me so I said I would take them, and I was left with a big pile in my pasture. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do with all of the chips, and it is a mighty big pile.
Lately in the evening I have been wheelbarrowing the chips along the shore of the pond filling up the low spots and muddy sections along our trail. It’s making our trail look a bit too civilized, but I’ve got a lot of wood chips I am going to have to deal with.
