Starting is slow

We had a very productive weekend last weekend. We were at the property for a fairly good portion of the time. A few weeks ago C’s parents had given us a tiller that didn’t work anymore. C spent a week taking it apart, cleaning it, and putting it back together. He got it to mostly work. It doesn’t reverse but that’s not a huge deal. We went to lowers on Saturday, bought a bunch of plants, then went out to the property to till the garden. 

  It took a few hours but C got the garden tilled enough to plant the plants we bought.  We now have Brussel sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, garlic, and asparagus. In the next few weeks we wil be planting our tomatoes and peppers. This is the biggest garden I have ever had and it’s small compares to what it will be. 


  Here is the exciting part about the weekend: we marked off where the house will be so we can start excavating in may.  A circle with a 25ft radius has an area of almost 2000 sq which is the biggest house either of us has ever lived in, which doesn’t count the loft.  The area looks so much smaller when it’s drawn on the ground.  

        The next step is to rent an excavator.  Can’t wait to break ground!!

The kids like the property too, although the best time to work on things is during nap time.
