Not stumped anymore

I winched the stump out this AM. The mosquitoes were swarming me, the yellow jackets weren't happy, and darn squirrels in the trees were pelting me with half eaten hickory nuts. But technically, I got the darn thing out of the ground without machinery although technically a winch would qualify as a machine.

The hole is a nice hiding place for bits of concrete and other rubble. Heck, the squirrels can pelt it with nuts for all I care. I sorted out the property line and I'm preparing to add a retaining wall. Might wait for a bit cooler weather.
