2007 Season
1/1/06 - Got an early start on things when we got some dry weather.  Ryan was on Christmas break from school so paid him to do some jobs.  He got several loads of leaves spread on the house garden.  Both my cousin and another landscaper brought leaves into December.  He also got all of the leaves spread in the house and field gardens.  Also got woodchips spread around - on the hillside, around the outhouse, and in the pathway in the field garden.  He also got some rock work done around the house parking area as well as a walkway to the toilet.

John has been doing a good job of managing the grow out activities again with year.  In spite of the very odd weather this growing season, the plants are healthy and thriving.

Compare this to the very first picture above.

Looking down the drive towards the Loafing Barn.

Facing up the hill towards the chicken coop.  I used some concrete blocks and a fence panel to cover the manure trough.

We have been using dirt from the North driveway retaining wall project to fill and sculpt this hillside.  I am also making a pathway to the office so that we can keep the big gate shut.

Starting the last week of September and continuing nearly every day until the third week in October, we had extremely wet weather.  We finally caught a break and we were able to get outside to finish up some project work as well as to get the gardens cleaned up, compost piles built, and leaves cleaned up.
