I have been too busy to post the last couple of days because as soon as I get home all I want to do is get out back and take care of the little things that has taken a back seat throughout the summer.
Example, I spent till dark last night cleaning my grill. It is amazing the crap build up those things can when you don't take the time to clean after every session and the yard, oh wow the yard, so many things were out of place and piled over the past few months just to get out of the heat as quick as possible. I bet we have 50 feed sacks that has accumulated.
I do not have any grass to mow but the weeds sure can thrive with no water so I plan to get those taken care of this weekend as well.
Tonight I have to help the church set up for their big fall event set for Saturday night, but tomorrow morning I plan to have some progress made on the 100% recycled wood shed.
Then tomorrow night it's off to the church thing where the Mini Farm donated a pair of live chickens for a door prize. That will be the first and I can hear them now, "Leave it to the rednecks".
I have decided to put the outdoor kitchen project on hold for the time being mainly due to not being able to build it with all the junk material I have. That project will take some money so I decided not to just sit on my hands and wine about it. I have moved on to start the planning stages of my outdoor bathroom consisting of a solar shower, wood heated bath and composting station. I scanned the piles of old barn wood and determined I have most if not all of the material it will take to complete that little project. I first need to finish the wood shed though.
So much to do and so little time....
Oh how I love the cooler weather.
