Today we had planned to get started on the goat shelter but we found out this morning that we can get someone to come in this Monday to cut some of the huge pines that are in the way for where we want to build the chicken coop. So that meant we had to move the log splitter, the lumber pile for the coop and the cold compost pile. We decided to combine some of the old compost pile with some new green material in one of those compost tumblers. I had a plan for this great 3 bay compost system that I wanted Don to build but we just have too much on our plates so we bought a tumbler for now. Maybe I can get him to build the 3 bay one this winter when things slow down a bit. We have had some foxes, raccoons and even a bear (as seen on the trail cam) check out the pile of mulch hay and miscellaneous compost materials so we really needed to get it under cover.
Last year he cut a hole in the bucket of the tractor and installed a hitch so he can tow things
like the splitter with the bucket. Pretty smart!
