A little look back to our continued projects this past spring…

I think we were getting signals from Mars with this HUGE satellite. It’s been bothering me since day 1 of moving in. It took 3 1/2 years for us to remove this beast from our property, and I’m so thankful it is gone!

 

 

 

 

The tricky part was making sure he moved away before the circle piece rolled away from the pole. With his cat-like reflexes, he missed it by a hair. This video cracks me up… Here it is in slow motion, but it went down fast.

Breaking it down into smaller pieces.

 

Spring was also when we got our dog named Henry. It was a trip up to Chicago. Let’s just say we made memories with him in the van on the way back home.

 

 

 

 

He feels like a part of the family now.

 

If you follow our adventures, you know how many trees we have cut down these past few years. That of course left many stumps on our property.

 

 

We got serenaded to and had excellent help when removing them!

 

We bought a light at the Midwest Food Bank Gala and added that to our barn. Here is Tater braiding rope to hide the chain.

 

 

A few other random tasks were finding the water back-up in our yard once again. After days of Tater digging his hand in dark, murky, freezing cold water, he finally found and uncovered the drain!

 

I tried my hand with the tractor. We added wood chips around the trees.

 

With the warmer weather arriving, we decided to make a bigger garden spot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It definitely keeps us busy, but man, there is nothing like going out to your yard for fresh fruits and veggies!
