I can’t believe it’s the end of July! This year has flown by!! It’s time to start aggressively storing food for the winter, gathering wood, and winterizing all the animal sheds and the house. I’ll save the house for last since the next two months will probably turn out to be our hottest months. The farm equipment should be finished for the year except for a couple tractors. Hubby always cleans them up and checks everything out for worn parts and replacement parts. I clean up the garden and yard equipment but still a little early for that. The major thing now is the garden. I will have more green beans to can this coming week and weekend, more squash to freeze, onions to store and more cabbage to do something with. The tomatoes and peppers are near ready yet and the summer “duratio” did away with most of the fruit. Luckily I stored lots last year.
Hubby worked on filling the wood house again today and the split stack is out of the rain. We still have a large load to split and more down from the storm to cut & split for the following winter.
All of the hay is stacked and ready for winter and hubby is in the process of cleaning up the hay equipment. The roofs have been taken care of and I have to put new interior tar paper in the chicken house. All of the major fence repairs have been made and the pastures are being sheared now.
