Almost go time

With the holidays just about over, hunting season concluding tom.  and only one more load of lobster traps to land, it’s time to start planning for the future.  First and foremost, we have to go and find some fish.  At the same time, I’m going to take advantage of the lack of snow to start a couple of projects and lighten the load for spring.

Phase one will be prepping the area below our lowest garden for a new row of fruit trees and a dozen or so Christmas trees:

The five foot York rake and my neighbors 45hp New Holland tractor should make short work of this…with the exception of digging the holes.

Phase two will be the construction of a new compost bin that will be able to handle more material than our current tumblers.  I’ve got my eye on something like this:

Naturally, my finished product will look a little more like an abandoned cardboard box shelter built by a one-armed chimp.  But its nice to dream.

Phase three will be to bring in a bobcat once the ground freezes to clear and grade a new patch of lawn around the chicken coup.  I’ve told myself over and over again not to put in any more grass to mow.   But sometimes, when the mood strikes, it’s better to act than think.

Before any of this can take place, we have to survive our annual New Years Eve bash.  Shits gonna git weird.

And why should you care about any of this?

Beats me.
