Winter Farm Junk…the Daily Farm Adventures — 6 Comments

    • Yeah, I find it hard to imagine that indoor plumbing is “asking a lot” of a place. Well, that and having to canoe part of the commute home. 🙂

  1. We are trying to get my husband’s family farm up and running again after 20 years of letting the trees take over. I am shocked at what we are already accumulating. I like your idea of spending a specific time making sure everything is cleaned up.

    • Yes, “junk” really becomes a misnomer. It’s stuff you’re going to need, or might need, or might be able to use later and save yourself some money and headache. We try to stay on top of it, but it definitely helps to just make it part of Saturday chores as well. Empty feed bags also pile up endlessly. And so many things you need for one season, but not another–like chick feeders. {sigh} Just part of the whole experience! 🙂

  2. I live in Northern California’s Sacramento Valley. We are supposed to have a mild Mediterranean Climate, but this past 10 days we have had a hard freeze every night! Our orange, lemon and mandarin trees are not looking very happy, but it doesn’t look like they are dead! We put those old fashioned Christmas lights in the trees and then tarp them, and that seems to help a lot. We got about 10 inches of snow up on our future homestead, which is 3,000 feet above our valley home, so we can’t get in there until the snow melts because we don’t have a 4-wheel drive vehicle yet. Thanks for sharing your pictures! I also love watching Alaska, The Last Frontier. It’s one of my favorite shows! Have a wonderful weekend!
