Back to the Grind

The past two weeks back on the farm have been a great change of pace from fast-paced life in DC. Getting up with the sun, eating meals entirely from the garden, physical labor, running into wildlife, it has been both enjoyable and relaxing, exactly what I need before I dive into another semester. It is interesting how there are always multiple projects to be makes me wonder if they will ever end. Anyway, to all siblings out there (especially the three who are far away) remember how awesome the farm is and come visit as soon as you can! It has been so long since I have seen ya'll here at home.

Trying to salvage the concrete for use as a parking slab.

I am up for any excuse to get up on the roof.

Running the powerline out to the barn.

Digging a trench for the powerline...the machine weighed at least a ton, it was hard to maneuver.

Pretty view of the valley.

I like how extreme the contrast is between the parched spots and the rest of the field.

One of my least favorite jobs—moving handlines out of the wheat field.

Fortunately there are not so many mainlines to move.

Mom and I were pretty proud of our scrabble game since we used all the letters but the "z", which ended up being responsible for her losing to me.
