Can I just tell you all how great it is to see some movement on this thread again?? It has been so quiet, and it is one of my favorites.
We've been so busy this winter, it seems like there was no slowing down. My new coop isn't done yet, but could be with a full day's worth of work. Unfortunately, we don't have a full day to commit to it. DH has been working so hard out back clearing pasture for my horse. He's expanded on what he cleared and planted last winter, and is now grinding stumps so that he is ready to seed the beginning of march or so.
We have a small outfit logger here that is clearing all of our pine trees. We love trees. We don't love pine trees. The limbs break in ice storms, the bull pines crack halfway up and fall over, taking out everything in it's path. Plus, where pine grows, nothing else does. We want our hardwoods to have a fighting chance. So, this logger is just starting out and is insured. So far so good. We had an excavating company out yesterday to make a road from our driveway toward the back of the property. This had been a hillside, and we had to be creative when trying to go back that way on the tractor or 4-wheeler. Now we have a straight SAFE shot out to the back pasture and can also turn and go up to the barn with no worries. Merry Christmas to DH!
I can't wait for spring!!!Edited by MistyMountain - 2/26/16 at 1:53pm
