Spring in Swing

Apr

Update on the studio! The repairs are all but finished, just a few minor details left like putting the dishwasher back.

The wall looks perfect. You can’t tell there was ever a hole there.

It’s cleaned up, straightened up, and ready for re-stocking for this year’s workshop season!

I have a special bulk pickup with the trash people for next week to take away the old toilet.

Next up–finish clearing out the gardens.

It’s been gorgeous here this week. Weather in the 70s and sunny! My lilac is budding.

Daffodils are blooming!

The goats are excited about the gardens coming in, too.

I might have to actually do something about this soon if I want to have any flowers. But! I have a new hired man starting today. Robbie used to come out with Adam sometimes a couple years ago, then Adam worked by himself here last year. Adam’s working fulltime now, but Robbie’s back! And I’ve got a spring list of farm labor that needs done, so he’ll be out here several times to get things caught up then as needed going forward. I’m SO happy to have a hired man on call again!

    Hi Suzanne!

    Where did you get your wonderful shelves in the studio? Are they Gorilla shelving?

    It looks great! Only 1 other comment: West Virginia, where farmers keep their toilets on the porch so they can enjoy the view while “sitting”!!!

    Things are looking very good at Sassafras Farm.

    I envy you the hired help….wish I could find one here. I could keep him busy.

    We’re having a wonderful spring also. We are drying out and the fields are green and the cows are doing great.
    I think we have gotten your winter breaking disease. You can pass it to someone else please. Love you Suzanne. Have a beautiful day and spring.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
