We helped out at a prairie burn this afternoon at Two Friends farm. I’ll mix it up and take you through the burn backwards.
At the end of the day, about five acres of prairie is torched.
Sending Martin out batting cleanup while we go try to find some cold ones (not really).
After setting the backfires, the main fire gets rolling.
A burning ring of fire!
Martin with a flapper to help smother flames along the edge of a fire.
Nice flapper work on the right side of the photo!
Starting the fire nice and slow – a back burn against the wind before starting the main fire.
