The day after Christmas I thought it might be fun to share what Santa brought everyone for the homestead. I got two magazine subscriptions and a wonderful set of architectural grade low voltage lights for my garden and pond area. How about you?

DH gave me one of the most commonly overlooked, and in most cases, the MOST important tool, in any good working homestead....a new coffee pot!! :haha:

A trailer full of restoration salvage from a holiday season house fire to sort through . lumber scraps, windows for a greenhouse, colored fiberglass covered roof tin for making fancy dog houses, and some scorched brick for raised bed borders. The folks who had the fire were lucky to be insured and I was lucky to know the restoration clean up contractor.

Actual bought items I got some gloves and tools and a few lengths of unteated lumber for my SFG.

Santas going to be a little late for us this year (or is it early for next year?). We are finalizing plans for the new barn. Looks like post and beam with 12 foot headroom below and 8 foot headroom (center). We are also getting electric to the cabin, which makes it easier to use power tools (less noisy for sure).

I got a pecan picker. But I had to buy it for myself tho. I was christmas shopping in a Atwoods farm store when I seen the little gadget. It's a little wire box on the end of a stick. The pecans slip right between the springy wires and wont fall back out. No more bending over, no laying sheets on the ground and shaking trees. Just walk and pick. Now if I can just beat the squirrels and crows to em'.
