what ya doing this weekend?
« on: March 02, 2012, 09:41:00 am »
just what to see if this works for anyone here. just to get an idea of everyones plans for their land when there may be a little help around. works well on another Hilux orientated forum

i have my 15 year old lad Byron with me tomorrow so cut the grass for the first time this year and empty the clippings onto the hugelkultur and if the rain stays off then might even get to close the beds with todays top soil delivery. think i might get the pot holes sorted in the lane to my land too. how about you?  :farmer:
1 acre of land where i am clearing trees and a swimming pool so we can make the land productive. MK3 hilux single cab pickup which has been completely rebuilt over the last 2 years matt black and cool as! no animals yet except a very furry black cat called Hansel (he is so hot right now)

Ive already done the morning feeding and mucked out the horse. I pulled the two quail pens outside for the first time this year( had temps above freezing all week!)

When ive finished my morning playing on the computer Ive got to hang out the washing (theres lots as its the first dry day in a week) Then clear out the workshop where the Quail were, Ive got a new Ikea Billy to make up and the room its going in to clean. I told myself I would finish painting a window frame I started the other day. Ive also prommised the bunnies I would clean all 12 of them out today.

But I might just sit and spin or card wool...at least until the next round of animal jobs.

This weekend me and other half will be cutting, splitting and hauling fire wood, half the log shed needs refilling. Then we will be setting up lights in the quail run to encourage them to start laying for Easter. Then we will be building a set of steps up to the chicken house so I can reach it to clean them out properly (I'm vertically challenged). Finely we will be fitting our new shower.  Don't think I've forgotten anything.

Lol Bazzais.

For me, it's a chance to do some real work instead of having to sit at a desk all week.

This weekend, I want to muck out 2 goat pens, but I will have to fit in around the normal chores as well as friends coming to visit so we can disbud their kids, and my niece's birthday party. Have pc work to catch up on, and I could do with doing some more of the desk job as well.
