High Hope Farm – January 27Posted: January 28, 2015
Not sure what happened, but I seem to have taken zero pictures on the 26th, oh well. We cleared a bunch of property of small trees and brush, making an impressive burn pile.
On Tuesday, we focused on the same spot, doing a good deal more clearing and burning. It was very rewarding to see just how open and clean this area now is. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t like burning big bonfires of brush!
M continues to love getting time on the ATV or “four wheeler” was we call it. He will drive around with me sitting behind him to the point that he says his thumb hurts from holding the gas down!
T continues to not want to really drive, but does like me to take him for a fast drive. I am able to get him to drive through the gates as I open and close them for us.
Afterwards, Pops has me do some harrowing of the long drive way to the house, a drive on the farm, as well as a paddock and a chewed up part of a field. We do the harrowing with Pops’ very old tractor for some reason. The noise and exhaust prevent the kids from joining me, so it proved to be a nice hour of alone time.
