Almost being the important word. I have been pitchforking the bedding into our cart, hauling it to the spreader and moving it away from the barn. The chickens (above) have been helping. I did the entire barn (the edges and poles where the tractor cannot get to) and the pens. I had 1/2 of one pen to go when the tractor’s steering gave out. Again. So frustrating. And now the rains have come. So now what?
