That is how I felt after looking back over what little I’ve accomplished this past week… Carl has reason to fire me. On Thursday, all I did was assist Carl somewhat installing greenhouse end walls, tend to the little piggies and goats, clean up white pine tree branches and stack the wood. On Friday all I did was tend to chickens, goats, horses and piggies, plow our early Spring field and continued cleaning up pine branches. It is a little depressing when I think back over this past week. I need time away from the valley – perhaps a hike to the ridge – just to clear my mind.
Lee has been felling trees for us around our greenhouse allowing more light through the forest canopy so hopefully our greenhouse is more productive this year. We are thankful that he is felling these trees because he has not yet crushed the greenhouse nor the pizza oven because of his experience felling trees along a desired fell line. Carl and I probably would have crushed the greenhouse felling those trees. SO THANKS LEE!
Alvin has nearly completed the road we will use to haul out timber and it is looking good. Now the challenge is how to get those trees out of the forest with the equipment we have!
