Spring Farm Clean-up

Upon moving back in this Spring quite a few chores had to be completed...

Repairing the Generator Shed, which had collapsed over the winter, was a top priority. The square hay bales were temporarily propped back up and the plywood roof reattached along with the tarp for water-proofing. This is only a temporary setup as the generator and the air compressor which currently reside in the little shed will be moving into the 10'x30' shed upon completion this Fall.

Fallen Limb Collection is necessary for path mowing but will also come in handy this winter when kindling is needed for the wood stove. A small kindling and wood pile will be placed immediately under the front of the micro mansion for easy access during the winter; with the larger winter supply being housed in the shed.

Outside Kitchen Up and Running was another necessity as the mice had taken it upon themselves to make little nests around the outside kitchen for shelter during the winter, not to mention the big nest that was built in the outdoor grill. Ugh! that was an undertaking to clean out.

Creating Work Benches for the New Shed will also need to be completed, but probably won't occur until late summer due to the fact that I have been called away for several weeks this summer to go help family back East.

The final Spring Clean Up item is repairing the center shed piling support. I may need a jack for this one. I found a 4-ton jack for sale online at TruValue Hardware for only $10, with a free ship-to-store offer which I will order online to help out with this project!
