Homestead Update

24 May

As promised, a weekly update on the happenings around here, however mundane they might be. I worked over 80 hours at my job this week so I didn’t have much spare time. But the most exciting news of all, we finally sold our former home in  town. Hallelujah! So not only do I have a nice check in hand from the proceeds of the sale, I no longer have to pay to have the lawn mowed, pay the utilities, and pay the insurance. That should help my cash flow greatly. So the first thing I did was go out and buy this for Sweet thing,,

A brand new ZTR mower. See what a considerate husband I am? HAHA! She has already decided she loves it after only one mowing.

Then this dump truck pulled up in the front. Why?

Another big pile of shredded pine bark mulch, ready to be spread. It’s a good thing I have a tractor with a front end loader. It would take a long time to spread that with a wheelbarrow and shovel!

I was out in the orchard late this evening and I noticed I had ripe raspberries! They were delicious. I guess I am now officially an orchard master! Anyway, I will try to keep you updated as I can, maybe it will rain this coming weekend like the weatherman is predicting. We are getting to the point where a rain would be welcome. Keep prepping everyone!

    Nice mower my friend. Too bad your tractor with the front bucket is orange though :)

    Nothing wrong with being orange. I have a good dealership to back it up as well, that is really important. Now if I can just find the time to use it!
