Now that the railroad is no longer running past our house, I thought I'd start cleaning up the mess behind my backyard, which includes a portion of my property. The section of track that went past our house was a spur that served the mill and people have thrown trash along the tracks for the past century. It still looks pretty bad but I have piled a bunch of the brush up into a couple of piles, which I'll probably stack behind the vacant house next door to me, to let it compost there, and I've bagged up a couple of bags of trash, which included rusting tin cans and an unopened bottle of Busch beer, which has been there for who knows how long. The cap is rusted but still holding. As I move brush and trash out of the way, I'll rake it and seed it. I have already cut several trees back there and a couple more have fallen, so I'll need to get the chainsaw out soon to take care of that. I could probably thin out a few more trees, too. I was going to post some pictures for, for some reason, I am unable to upload them and don't have any more time to mess with it. I'll come back and post pictures later.
