Yes, part of the blackberry & plum thicket removal will be for pasture. Right 
now, however, we're trying to get a yard half-way established around the 
house. I've been trimming up some of the trees and they're beginning to look 
good. Yesterday I found a volunteer native pecan tree and a volunteer pear 
tree. I felt like I'd struck gold!! 

We plowed & tilled up garden space (pulling out all of the underground roots) 
and I planted four rows of condtender beans, two rows of purple onions, three 
rows of Kennebec potatoes, three kinds of squash, two kinds of cucumbers and 
a row of French breakfast radishes. I have asparagus crowns waiting to go 
into the ground. 

There are many birds on the property and we enjoy them immensely...guess 
those blackberries and plum thickets are not a total loss!
