Busy day. Many aches and pains to add to yesterday's aches and pains, But, they are happy aches and pains. Hubby helped me: put together the 2 frames that were treated with shou-sugi-ban. Each frame is about 75 x 31" with a 2" wood tab that sticks up at each corner. So that... when the next frame is set on top, it is held in place by the tabs. We made the frame for a chicken tractor that will fit on top of either of these frames. I have hdw. cloth that was saved from the other tractor to finish the new tractor. (which will be painted white) Next, I'll make frames that will hold patio door screens or glass. And a frame with curved top ( 2 x 4 welded fencing) which may be hinged.) That frame will require some cogitation, b/c I want to be able to cover the fencing with either greenhouse plastic or remay/shade cloth.
I also started digging up one of the new beds in new garden area. Unfortunately, the TroyBilt is buried at back of the garage, and I can't get it out b/c the chicken brooders are in the way... Though... I'm re-thinking that idea, and actually may be able to move the chick brooder to get the TroyBilt out. That would save a LOT of work! And... time is in such very short supply right now.
Tonight, I cooked BBQ chicken, broccoli with cheese sauce, and Gary added Tater Tots to the meal. Such an ambrosia of flavors!!!
I like tater tots, don't be knocking them.now...
