My list is long and I fear that I won't get it all done. The last couple of days I have been getting vehicles ready for the winter, but still don't have my plow truck ready (sigh). I have the alternator from HADES that is giving me fits (long story) so after spending 120.00 for plates for my dump truck, another 100 to change the oil pan on my van (thank the good Lord that is done) and stacking firewood in my spare moments, I am beginning to be VERY thankful for the 65+ weather around here. I did get my new SUPERVENT (I am NOT a paid advertiser) chimney in, pictures will follow. I marked all my maples (well the ones that I am going to use for syrup) today with a red dot of paint. I think my neighbors probably think I have gone nuts. I got a two acre plot plowed with open furrows to let the frost do it's job. Old farm field that has been fallow for a few years now. I am trying to get it ready for pumpkins and corn next year. Lets see on the list to do: *Butcher Chickens... don't wait, get rid of those roosters. NOW! *Finish the new Poultry Palace, what an ambitious endeavor. It has a central area with two "wings" (puns will follow) one for turkeys, one for layers. *Clean out all that "extra" stuff from the attached garage to make room for more wood (I am moving it all INSIDE to save from treading through snow in the winter) *Butcher two pigs (goal is by the end of november, before Thanksgiving preferably) *Haul a LOT more stone in to cover the mudspots in my drive. *Put new "smaller shelfs" in the one pantry for my wife's spices *"finish out" my chimney for my woodburner. (I removed a window and built a subwall, and that's where I exited the house with the chimney, so now I have to put some of my extra left over aluminum on the outside) *clean the shop, it's amazing during the warm weather, how disorganized it gets, because I don't want to spend anytime in there. *repaint the kitchen, wife wants a new color, so that will be a rainy/snowy day job *I will probably have to mow one more time, that's weird... and of course I need a new tensioner pulley for the drive belt. So I will be replacing that soon I suppose. *After I get rid of the two pigs, do a major clean out on the stall where they were kept. *Bring down a bunch of standing dead wood and clean up an old pasture that the previous owners let go to saplings, which are now a bunch of 6 inch diameter trees. *Ebay, ebay ebay... man I like doing it, but ain't very good/fast at it. I have a ton of cool stuff like some old one gallon jars with cork lids etc. that I have to get sold. *My farm website. I need to get-r-done. Basically I need to get the "work" portion of it done first. The part that I want to advertise some of the hauling/plowing stuff we do on. *My car hauling trailer has a broken board in the deck. I really need to replace the whole deck with rough sawn oak from the local amish mill, but alas the 125.00 to do that (14 foot pieces) went to my stupid oil pan. Oh, and I suppose I need taillights on it again too. * I still have apples to press for cider, they are almost ready. * If the weather holds out, put in a few more raised beds * Plant a few more bulbs. *This is a "want to, hope to" item. I have an old 67 or 68 Massey Ferguson Lawn Tractor. It's called an MF-10. It has a cast iron tecumseh, that runs well. I want to refurbish it. Man I like the old lawn tractors, it has character, and as an added bonus it was given to me! okay, those are a few that I can think of. What's on your list???
