With the improved weather I did manage to work on a few projects this past week. I used my tractor and brush-grubber chain to pull up some of those sapling trees on the front area by the highway. Someday when I get that finished the driveway to the house will look much neater.
I noticed Lowe’s had some fruit trees priced at $12.50 each and after quickly checking around town the other stores had trees priced $20-30 each so I went back to Lowe’s and bought 10 more trees to add to the orchard. I also dug enough holes with the posthole digger to plant the vines I bought last Fall, (grapes, raspberries, blackberries) and blueberries. I picked up 6 grapes at Wal-Mart, they were sprouting so I knew they were alive so I felt safe buying them, otherwise I steer clear of buying live plants at discount stores for the most part. I spent an afternoon picking up limbs and using the loping shears to trim up some vines and brush around the fences. I spent a few hours cleaning up inside my shop so I can get better organized. I serviced up my tractor and made preparations to hook up some more of my implements the next week so I can work up the garden area. It won’t be too long and I can start putting some seeds and plants into the ground! Keep prepping everyone!
