Backyard Adventures

While we are out messing about in the yard. Every back yard needs a fire pit. This one sits on the remains of a brushpile left over from clearing this land. Everything you can see in this pic was once an impenetrable, fifteen foot tall, hedge of thorn, autumn olive, poison ivy and various other brush. Over the last few years we've slowly been clearing it back and seeding. As I come across rubble and stone from the previous farm here, I add it to the ring. I want to get a play house (or maybe a tipi) for the kids at some point, as well as build an earth oven next to the pit. This is also the central outlet for the trails I'm making in the woods below.
