We advertised the farm house on Craig's List and got interest right away. We have signed a lease with a young family looking for a country home for their two lovely daughters, chickens and possibly milk goats. We're looking forward to working more closely with them. I have already broken sod for a new 40x50 ft garden in the former south pasture.
Last weekend we spread 15 cu yds of 'hog fuel' in the raspberry patch. 'Hog fuel' is freshly ground up wood material which makes good mulch. Often hog fuel is full of green branches, metal (soda cans), etc. This stuff was pretty clean. Cheaper than 'mulch' but just as useful.
