But Adam has been quite busy on the farm in my absence.
He's been raking up leaves all over and putting those leaves on the compost piles.
He started work on our chicken coop and yard. The yard will be a long rectangle along the orchard fence.
Here's a view of the proposed site from the other end.
This was a dead crape myrtle right by the road:
Alright, you're probably tired of seeing tree stumps! He hauled it all to our burn pile. We plan to roast a fair share of marshmallows over Thanksgiving, haha!
Pecan picking-up has continued apace. Adam wore his back out with bending over, so I bought a little contraption at the local hardware store.
Ignore the saw. In fact, ignore a lot of random things you might see lying around our farm. It's a work in progress! Anyway, Adam has picked up many pecans. That big box is just a fraction. I took three bags to West Virginia.
On to the next topic: our sewer.
We have a septic tank in the side yard that connects to the city sewer. The grass there grows thick and particularly green:
And speaking of green -- the wheat and barley are doing very well! They're tall, and not too yellowed from all the rain. We're having delightful, dry, cool autumn weather now.
