I got another 2 trees from the ReLeaf program this year, and found at least a dozen more small pine trees growing in my dad’s various garden beds. They range from 3.5′ down to 8″ We gathered all these and filled in some spots along the windbreak….which may be useful in another 15 years….and a few good looking spots.
I also found a slew of strawberries ripe. Af days ahead of schedule for June-bearing, but WOWm were they tasty.

During planting day, the helper I’ve been hiring named Karter, and I also salvaged out another 5 beams from the barn. I’m still not getting any work done at the farm, as I’ve been spending all my time on another project.
