Remowed 18′ burn break around the property perimeter. Also mowed 18′ burn break across width and length of property (dividing property into 4 quadrants).
Managed to get couple of acres mowed (east side of south/western quadrant) and around the stock tank which is now looking much better.
Just north of old barns amongst cedar and live oak trees is a shaded area that holds water and is proving to be a popular hangout for butterflies.
Clean, added new batteries and installed trail camera on western side of stock tank for monitoring of animals.
Cleaned out, checked sealing, filled in hole in base of feeder and added 150lbs milo seed for turkey.
Watered 2014 and 2013 planted trees and shrubs – lack of rain and freezing winter have been tough on young plants but so far all are doing well with no losses to report.
Filled up and cleaned out water feeders.
Got to spend morning outside to cut down cedar trees. Trees cut down were between 6 inches and 7 feet in length. Managed to get a couple of hours in but the Texas sun got the better of me,
Built a habitat shelter from longer cedar trees and filled in with smaller trees.
Fixed leak in tank and serviced water pans/floats.
Gave white tank a thorough cleaning – required a soak in vinegar solution to remove all algae.
