The Homestead

Now that I know the old shed has tranformed into an insulated, heated cabin that can withstand the winter weather, I can officially call it a homestead.  Lot’s of things to do such as building a greenhouse and preparing to put in a garden.  Maybe even some livestock.  Chickens or rabbits most likely but not cows.  We’ll see.  The goal is turn the place into a self-sufficient homestead.

But this January thaw and heavy rain has brought up another problem.

I need to dig a drainage ditch.  With the amount of ground water I may actually start a spring.
