clearing out brambles the hard way by hand

We've been trying to reclaim this gully that's grown up with brambles and Japanese Honeysuckle for years now, and thanks to the new Stihl FS-90R weed eater we've finally made some serious progress on cutting it all back.

It's a decent amount of space between our mule garden and the back garden.

I guess we'll have to come up with a name for it now so it will feel at home with its neighbors.

I suggest "Long Time Gully" Because it took a long time to get it cleared and it will be a long time before you let it go back.

Mona --- I like it! Mark's right that this spot now needs a name --- we have plenty of other gullies in uncultivated areas to distinguish it from.
