Yep...

I braved the mosquitoes and headed back to examine the damage.  Good news - there's no doubt where that particular wheelbarrow of detritus landed.  Bad news - it looks like I... how did Mel put it?... turned loose a 500lb chocolate addict in a chocolate store.

I guess the bright side is that I found out about this now, instead of in a growing season or three.

So this weekend we are going to dig out that section and dump it onto our big green tarp.  I will wrap it up like a dumpling and leave it in the sun to cook while I figure out the safe way to burn it to ash.

I think I need a half of a 55 gallon drum.  They make nifty backyard firepits anyhow.  I can have dad weld some legs on it for me, or even better, teach *me* how to weld some legs on it.  For that matter, dad may have a drum in the barn.

I can eradicate this thing before it gets away from me - right?
