Before Steve left, some progress was made. None of it makes for good photography but it passes for exciting stuff around here.
The mailbox I’ve been nagging him about for years is finally up and in service. Still needs some sort of closure and a flag but those are small potatoes to worry about later.
The wellhouse is still not finished but Steve wrapped the openings in chicken wire for now so that I can clean & straighten it back up (dog + cats + welding = extreme unneatness) and start lifting weights again without worry about Josie running off every split second I turn my back.
The goats and chickens now have a larger, lusher area to roam and munch. It starts at the west end of the garden and original pen,
heads west along the edge of the driveway,
and down to the road, linking up with the old hog pen (the kids and I will fix it so they can go in there as well in a week or two) and around to the lower garden.
The critters are fat and happy!
