Solo Farming


So I have been on my own on the farm for 9 days.  Tom has been on an 1000 mile dirtbiking trip.  Above are the usual daily animal chores as previously written out for our farm sitter.  There is also house cleaning, laundry, dishes and cooking to do.  But there are additional chores that need to be done this busy time of year.  The barn needs to be mucked out,

muckingmanure needs to be spread,

manure spreader and cartfruits and vegetables need to be harvested,

crabapplesand preserved for winter.

Eggs need to be washed and sold,
