I would wish that at the end of my life when I stand before God I can say I used up all the talent you gave me.

SAGA OF THE YUCCAS - PART 2
So Friday evening I was sitting in the yard as I usually do and my neighbor and her beau walked over. I said I was trying to figure a way to burn those trees without going to jail. If I prune them they double in size, if I cut them down several spawn - they are like trees from hell. He asked why I'd want to cut a Joshua tree (variety of yucca) instead of shuck it? Wait, what - there was an alternative? Turns out her beau studied horticulture and knew all about these trees. They were right, the more I cut them, the more they branched out with new limbs - you have to shuck the razor like leaves off and shape the tree that way. It took 20+ large yard bags but he shucked all my trees and I love them. I'm going to mulch around them this week with that pretty red mulch.
