Work day

My parents were kind enough to come back again this past weekend to help us get some more stuff done around here.  Chris & I decided that we either need to get rid of a bunch of sheep or get to working on the fencing around the soon-to-be pasture because these ladies are just plains expensive to feed with the cost of hay being so ridiculously high.

Fencing it is!

This past Sunday we (meaning the men) pulled out all the old railroad tie fence posts that were rotten and/or not inline.  Which meant all of them came out.  Chris & my dad sunk two corner posts and hopefully we will have more time this weekend to work on it again.  We've already bought the seed for the pasture, and it just needs to be gone over with the disc again and it should be about ready to plant.  Can't wait for it to be all lush and green out in front of the barn!!

While the boys were busy pulling fence posts, my mom & I had a massive burn barrel going on.  We got a huge pile of old wood burned up and the junk piles behind the barn are starting to diminish.  I have been slowing burning more and more each day & today is the first day since Sunday that I've had to use the lighter to get the fire started back up.

Me discing one evening last week

Lovely friend in the wood pile.  When I smashed her about a bajillion eggs came out, so I'm glad I got to her before those suckers hatched!

FREE railroad ties.
The previous owners left us with this wonderful pile.  We are going to use a few for fence posts but have no idea what we are going to do with the rest.

All the posts are gone along the front.  Can't wait to get the grass growing and the new fence up!
