We have been very busy clearing out brush and junk piles throughout the yard this week as well as building some temporary shelving for storing our food supply and packed moving crates in the house.
With so much work to do it is somewhat daunting to decide where to begin. Since we really cannot do much inside the house, we are focusing on cleaning up the yard and seeing what potential exists for creating our farm.
To better illustrate just how far we’ve come since this time last year I thought I’d share a few then and now photographs. In October when we moved to the farm, the grass everywhere was up to my elbows in height. I spent weeks mowing the front and back yard areas with a push mower. This year I now have a riding mower, less exercise but I can get more area cut and maintained.
