It's been raining all night and most of the day at the Small-Hold but I did manage to get the last of the old scrap/junk metal cut up, loaded and strapped down to my truck and trailer. I decided that it was a bit too windy to try hauling that huge round water tank that is wider than my truck down the road however today. Although the water tank was hit by a tractor (I wasn't driving) it still holds water and I figured out that what I thought was a good idea in putting it on the trailer and using it as kinda it's own truck bed to haul smaller metal scrap in was a mistake.
Luckily I discovered the problem before the water got too deep in it and punched a bunch of holes to let the water out before it broke my trailer.
The top picture has been my only purchase and move towards gardening so far this year. A couple of Black Raspberry plants I gave the wife for our anniversary. She loves that kind of gift and now get's to not only research to see if we need a cross pollinator but will also make the final decision of where they go and direct me in the planting. Mrs. PP LOVES to be in charge of a project.
Since it was raining I had thought I would spend most of the day cleaning and getting my shop back in order. It's a real mess with re-loading and bullet casting stuff still laying everywhere, boxes of screws and nails I have yet to find a home for. Power tools littering the floor and half finished projects leaning up here and there along with the frame filled boxes of this year's deadouts.
Here's looking in the door.
Far left towards the honey harvesting storage area.
As you can see it's a real mess and needs straightened out so I can start on this year's bee hive construction. I was really feeling all dismayed by it until I was reading John's blog last night and saw his work shop.
At least I can still kinda walk in mine and what is that a handle to a lawnmower on top of everything else? No wait it's a dolly handle LOL. After that picture I decided I could let my mess of a shop go for a few more days :)
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!
And clean your shop :)
