The back yard looks like a hacked-up mess. This is an improvement over the over-grown mess that it looked like before. There's a car-sized pile of green waste that's going to have to go to compost. Anybody got a chipper/shredder?
I also gave everything a wash-down with "insecticide soap" (potassium salts of amino acid soap, a popular organic natural insecticide) to get rid of the aphids and mites that have been infesting some of the trees. We'll see how it works.
We're going to have to replant a few things. A lot is just going to come back up from the roots, though.
