|Garlic after planting before straw covering|
|Isn't this the cutest baby mouse?|
So...as I was loading the straw into wagon, I uncovered this nest of mouse babies. No mama around, just babies. After taking a few pics, I covered them back up. Yes, I know they will end up in the house. A killer I am not.
On Tuesday our garage doors were installed. Wow, so nice. We still have to take down the old metal sliding barn doors (good to use for an alpaca structure :-). We got the cross buck style that goes well with the barn.
|We still need to finish the trim on top.|
|Once the steel doors are removed & the new "people door is installed, the front will be done.|
We've had a frost but the garden hasn't been affected. I cut some more Chocolate Mint, brought in a pumpkin & a Long Island Cheese Squash. Picked some rose hips. That's about it. No more tomatoes or peppers.
Tomorrow I hope to plant winter rye behind the garlic bed and off to one side of it, dig more potatoes & leeks. I also have onions to dice for dehydrating & maybe some leeks.
Next week there might be a barn raising at Eli & Lizzie's. Wish I could be here for that.
In a few weeks, the wood stove will be moved into the new living area & the used one we bought on Craigslist will take it's place in the "cabin room". Have to get busy with the river rock install in the new living area. A lot of changes this fall!
Work is still busy & stressful. We also have a non-paying customer we are dealing with. He owes us a lot of money. He isn't paying the contractor or designer either. This is very stressful. We don't want to use a collection agency, but might have to go that route. Half is better than none. Hmmm. I hate when real life interferes with our idyllic farm life.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
