Uprooting the Pepper Tree

The front yard had a stump that needed to be uprooted. T dug it up all by himself in 3 days. Amazing!!! Thanks T! The trees roots were dangerously close to the main water pipe (like 4 inches from a very large root!) Once we figure out a way to get that 250 lbs of pure root out of the giant hole, we'll move over about 4~5 feet to plant a large Avocado tree since we love Avo's! 
He did it!
C celebrates too!

I have some Brazilian Pepper Trees and they are such an invasive plant. I've been battling the same one for many years but I've never pulled out the roots like you have. That is some giant hole!

Thanks for checking in Little Ant, HermiJim, Katie and Ginger! I'm very blessed to have such a hard-working hubby. He's very supportive of my ventures to try to live more sustainably. He enjoys seeing what we grow on his dinner plate. We also feel blessed that our son can grow up knowing where food comes from and how it is made.
