2014 To Do Lists

Well, it's that time of year again. Time to reflect and time to look forward to 2014.  As in years past, I review my "must have" and "wish lists", to see how far we've come, what we missed and what needs to be added.

We have a few hits and misses, throw in some quick changes or events and you'll always seem to come up short.  So, as you'll see below, the 2013 list remains and I've added a few more items as well.

Must Have List
Finish the pump house and reverse osmosis system
Purchase and plant additional blueberry plants
Purchase and plant additional asparagus plants
Build a couple of raised beds; garlic, peas, lettuce, etc
Install chicken wire on the chicken run wall, between the two areas.  Then we’ll be ready for chicks.
Hatch out more chicks
Finish the exterior of the outdoor pizza oven
Become efficient cooking outdoors; dutch oven, outdoor pizza oven, etc
Continue with weapons training

Set Up Solar Panel Array

  1. Looks like you are in for a busy year.
    Good luck with it all.

    1. MDR, yes it'll be another banner year! There's always so much to do, and always the unexpected!

  2. I like the pizza oven and plan on building something along those lines, good luck on finishing the outside.

    1. Thank you, we really enjoy having it. We have a friend that is a carpenter by trade, and he's promised to help finish off the outside. We can hardly wait to see what it will look like when finished.

  3. yes, always the unexpected! love your pizza oven; I've always wanted to build an outdoor oven...not on my list this year. This is the year for finishing what we've already started. I just cannot imagine a single new project! Happy new year!


We love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
