Homesteading, Organic Gardening, How to Farm, Preparedness, Self-Reliance
First of all we got a total of 2 inches of rain last week and this was after 3 inches of snow the previous week so the ground was saturated. It allowed our lake to rise about 2 feet due to the run off, etc. We were very thankful!
I got my first pair of farm boots - black and purple Muck boots. They came in handy after that rain due to all the mud. I used them when I cut down cedar trees all day last Friday and part of Saturday. We have so many and I'm trying to get some ground cleared so we can reclaim some pasture. It was too nice a day to stay inside, so out I went with my bow saw and lopping shears. I saved the larger ones for the guys and the chain saw but I did what I could and thoroughly enjoyed my day outside.
Back on the inside we got the hot water tank vented and the sewer pipe fixed so this weekend we had hot water. Now we are working on framing up my daughters bathroom so we can get the vanity, shower and toilet in place and finish the plumbing in the basement. We also worked on more sanding and applying more mud to the master bedroom wall.
Hope everyone is enjoying winter and hope you have received some rain as well!
