September 1st Progress Report

1 Sep

Things at the north end of my farm are moving quickly now!  It’s really starting to look different. Maybe some day I won’t even have to crop out the electric line by the windmill, but for now…


They are done with removing the concrete and buildings that were up there, and filling it in and smoothing it out.

The well beneath the windmill has been filled in and sealed.  You can see there’s still some junk to get rid of, but we’re making progress!


We also got a water line run to beside the building and put a frost free hydrant in.  The trench that’s there now is for the electric line, which should be run soon.


Up next is fixing the doors and windows and cleaning inside the building.



Behind the building, we got rid of the fallen tree, and my nephew cleaned out the fencerow.


The pumpkins are growing and turning!  Soon I’ll be able to see orange all over because the plants are just beginning to die down.


I can’t believe how much progress we’ve made, and it’s a little scary that next month will be October and time for the pumpkin patch!

      It’s been a whirlwind for the last few weeks. It’s not going to slow down either.

    Good luck with your patch. It should be a lot of fun. My pumpkins did not do well this year – I think due to the rainy, cool, early-summer weather.

      I was worried about my pumpkins with all the rain, but our work of tiling seems to have paid off.

    • Teresa September 2, 2015 at 9:49 am #

      It is! I’ve been wanting to clean up this area and do something with it long before I bought it.

    Wow! The progress is tremendous! I’m so excited for you – change can bring new options and breathe new life into our souls. It must be so rewarding for you to see all the wonderful changes happening on your farm!

      It is wonderful to see the transformation. I really do hope it helps to propel my life in a new and exciting direction.

    Really looking good, Teresa! And a tremendous amount of work accomplished. Kudos to all of you.

      Luckily, I mostly get to write the checks; although, it might be fun to try my hand at the bulldozer. 😉

      We are certainly making progress, but there’s so much left to do.

    Been very busy around the farm. Pumpkins are coming along nicely. My sister just gave me acorn squash from her garden yesterday. I love this time of year for the produce!

    • Teresa September 4, 2015 at 7:01 am #

      I do love the harvest season.
