It has Begun
I wish I could tell you I did something exciting or finished a project today that was spectacular but sadly it would be a lie. I took my load of metal, mostly old fencewire, into the scrap yard this morning and then tilled my entire half acre garden area and mowed the damned lawn.
When I got all that done I had enough light left to climb up on the roof and clear a clog from my gutter downspout.
That was about it today.
Just think in four or five days I will have to do it all over again. Well not the tilling at least that is mostly done. I will re-till it again in sections as I plant so I won't have to waste four hours doing it with the small tiller in one go again.
I really need a tiller for my Ford tractor but the wife won't let me buy one. :(
I bet she would if I put her A$$ behind that walk behind tiller. Why is it they design those things with such a short wheel base and low clearance? Seems like every few feet I have to back it up because so much stuff is getting pushed up under it.
Anyway the soil is some fine stuff. I could almost bag it as potting soil with all the old sheep manure and bedding I have mixed in to it now.
That's about it for tonight. Excuse me while I go pass out.
It was fun resting under the big BoxElder Tree and listening to the thousands of my bees up there working though....
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
