Ok so I have a good internet signal this morning so I figure it's a good time for me to upload some pics.

First thing I got to work on was clearing up the path down to the compost heap, shower and toilet

Then I liberated a few garden beds so we could get some stuff planted

Next task was to clear up the jungle behind the house

Our rainwater collection tank is back there and I wanted to be able to access that more easily, plus it looks a lot nicer now

I also cleared up about 15 feet of brush from the right of the garden beds I recently freed up. There were some fruit trees and a blueberry bush that were all choked up, so I wanted to get them accessible and clear some more usable area for garden beds.

our Airstream trailer was in danger of being taken over as well, so I cleared up the area around and behind that

The inside of the trailer is an "ongoing" project. It's kind of beat and hasn't been properly lived in for quite some time so I'm working on it. I'll post the before and after pic when I'm finished.
