Turning the Dream into Reality

A Little R&R April 11, 2010

We began the repair and renovation on the barn yesterday.  Rob’s brother, Rich, came out to help us and we were able to get quite a bit done.  Rob got the roof put back together while Rich fixed an entrance that had been knocked off its rocker.  I started sanding the old paint off the barn in preparation for a fresh coat.  We screwed all the siding back down and it already looks tons better.  I can’t wait to get the paint on it!!  Unfortunately, that is going to have to wait a little bit longer.  I have garden beds that need to be prepared and they take priority over painting.  (Sniff Sniff) 

This morning the guys repaired the roof on the house.  Hopefully we will not have any more extremely high winds for a while.  While the guys were working on that, I dug a couple more garden beds.  Peas have been in for a week or so and I put radishes in this morning.  I have the bed for garlic ready, but I probably won’t get it planted until tomorrow.  Four beds down, 30 more to go.  Anybody looking for something to do?  If so…

The duck house is coming along nicely.  We need to pick up a few more supplies, and then the ducks are moving in.  The plan is to finish that up next weekend.  Spring projects are just moving right along.
