A Productive Break

28 Nov

I spent some time working over my Thanksgiving break from the off-farm job. Bright and early on Wednesday morning, I took Bob and Rocky to the vet for their annual shots.

I managed to get most of my winterizing done in the barnyard.

I switched to the big tub and put the heater in it.


Of course, everyone is upset because there’s a change.  They are not fans of change.  But it got down to 14°F the night after I got it all done.  I had no time to spare.

I also moved the “shade” tarp, so it is a wind break.

I finally got all the tomato cages pulled out of the garden.

I didn’t get it mowed off, but it will provide shelter for some wild critters.  The milkweed will also spread its seeds.

I also had a dumpster delivered.  I need that.  Hopefully, I can get a lot of my barnyard (and upstairs and basement) cleaned up.

It’s scary how a farm (and person) accumulates so much junk. I blame the goats breaking stuff.

    You will be surprised at how quick that dumpster fills up. When I was clearing out my mothers house before selling it, I rented a dumpster 2 sizes bigger than that one, and it wasn’t enough.

      This is a small one, but they will leave it as my garbage pickup. Not sure how long I’ll need it to get things cleaned out. But I’ve been here for about 23 years–that’s a lot of acquiring junk.

    Yes, it’s amazing how much “stuff” we can collect over the years! My husband and I were married n 1958. We managed to collect a fair amount of stuff. We found out that it helped to move occasionally. We managed to get rid of some stuff each time we moved. But now, it’s been 27 years since we last moved. The young man across the street from us has a huge trailer/dumpster brought to his house every once in a while, and it doesn’t take long to fill it!
