Besides the obvious farm work of planting, weeding, and harvesting, there’s a ton of support work that goes on around the farm to keep things running smoothly. That involves a ton of fixing, rigging, inventing, cobbling together and otherwise improvising to make and repair the tools we need. Like most farmers, we’re frugal folk who see almost every object as potentially useful, fixable or at least worth holding on to.
Which is how it came to pass that the barn is entirely impassible, and finding things in it nearly impossible.
It was time for a little cleaning.
So, for the past six months or so, Bruce has been working to clean out, organize, and dispose of many of the objects residing in and around the barn, sorting out usefuls, burnables, trashables, and scrapables, and today, he and Denis took several loads down to the scrap yard. Here they are with their quarry. Note that they’ve packed the scrap wire into the hood of the junker car. No wonder they look so proud if themselves!
Nice work guys.
