We managed to get a little tree work done this week. Will spent some time earlier this year cutting a few dead trees and hauling them into our pit on six and then most of Wednesday dropping a few trees. The tree company came in on Thursday, sorry ladies, and chipped what he cut and also a few more he dropped Thursday. We lose about a dozen pines every year on the property and this year a couple were in the large variety.

Saw this Monday morning whilst hosing fairways:

I wrapped up my sprayer investigations today with a trip to Farm Neck. More about that procedure in another post.
I try to keep this blog about stuff related to the Mink but I would be remiss if I did not mention the fact that Boston Bruins won Lord Stanley's Cup Wednesday night. I have been a big fan for my entire life and the bride and I watched almost every game this year. What a treat. Well worth all the lack of sleep and fuzzy mornings. Next week will be the first week with all staff on board. Taylor Smith is back from college out in Oregon and Mike wraps up school here on Tuesday. That means we can start to tackle little projects like mulching the beds, cleaning the woods areas of 3,8 and the left hill on 9 as well as finishing the power washing and staining of the decks. Assuming I can get ahead of the irrigation system I would like to start spraying some of the clover and crabgrass which is just starting to appear.
