It's nearly impossible to get anything done after 11am or before 4pm. You get to the point where you can't possibly drink another bottle of water, tea, etc. There's just no room for it, but your body is still thirsty. We come home with a hamper full of stinky, sweaty clothes. Can I say it again? Bring on October!
Now, don't go thinking all we did was sit around, how else would we have ended up with a hamper full of clothes? The guys built a third farrowing pen, just in time too we had another sow deliver her brood of 7 (the 8th looked to be stillborn) on Sunday.
We hauled out our 25 new blueberry plants, and started the planning stage of how to get them planted next to the container. We are building what will end up looking like a giant raised bed.
It'll hold the dirt back and help eliminate erosion. I started by painting some 8' and 10' 2x4's. The guys used some of the free pallet materials to build the upper structure. I don't have any photos of those yet, as they still need to be painted.
But the best part of our weekend was this:
Peeecan smoked chicken and ribs! The Moose bought the new smoker, and the boys put it together and cooked dinner. What a treat! Perfectly juicy, smokey chicken and ribs! Can I hear you say YUM?!
