Trimming the hedge

A couple weeks ago, my friends Markus and Liz helped me trim the hedge at my house.

It was a big job, taking about 5 hours.

I later rented a big chipper and got about 4.5 yards of wood chips.

If you look closely at the box of chips, you’ll see steam coming out of the pipe. For more about why the pipe’s there, see: This post on composting

Instead of using a ladder, I rigged up a scaffolding on my truck.
