First off, he got our Kawasaki Mule running and running well! Yea Will! He even took me for a speedy ride and then let me drive it. Then he went down the big hill to the barn and tossed two bales of hay in the back and sped right back up the icy, snow-covered hill. He still has a few small things to hook up (choke, starter, etc.) but that’ll be nothing.
And, because we’re offering dozens more varieties of seeds for sale on our little Seed Treasures business, we needed some sort of rack to hold all those plastic shoe boxes containing seeds. Last year we had a smaller one, but no way will that hold all the boxes we need this year. So yesterday, Will started measuring, sawing, and hauling lumber. We still have a big pile of the free ¼-inch and ⅛-inch Russian plywood in the barn, so as the shelves will only be holding very light boxes of seed, he’s making the shelves from that, nailed down to 2×2-inch lumber we cut yesterday on the table saw in the storage barn. We worked on it all day and today, Will’s busy putting it all together. When I get done blogging, I’ll be able to start stocking shelves. It’ll make filling seed orders much faster and more convenient.
I’m starting to receive seed catalogs, as I’m sure most of you are. And already, we’re planning on some new things to add to our garden next year. How exciting. I go downstairs and look at our bulging pantry and feel so blessed. I’ve been hungry in my life and this is SO much better! — Jackie
