Last week's backhoe delivery was postponed due to rain and flash flood warnings. Permaculture consultation was postponed due to same. I'm off work tomorrow (Friday) and plan to rest up as much as possible, as this weekend will be wonderfully, hectically busy.
Saturday & Sunday, backhoe projects:
- Fill in big hole where a former in-ground tub used to be.
- Dig out second, bigger goose pond.
- Fill raised veggie beds.
- Test dig holes in various parts of property for next phase of fruit/nut tree installation.
Sunday evening, after work: Joy will be teaching me how to butcher roosters. My poor hens will be glad of their riddance. Still considering keeping one roo (they're good at warning when there's a raptor), but not sure yet. Guess I could keep one, and if That Lucky Roo acts too much a fool, I'll have the skills to dispatch him personally.
Monday at lunchtime: Lyn is tentatively scheduled to come by and look over the land to get an idea of layout for permaculture project. We had a great phone meeting last weekend, and am excited to see what kind of ideas her visit sparks!
I'm reading this and the words are starting to flow together, not making much sense. Time to hit the sack.
