There was much to do throughout the land; fences needed building, fixing, and maintenance work. Garden plots needed to be chosen, mapped out, dug up, mulched, planted, weeded, watered, and generally all around cared for. Fields for the animals needed to be picked out after careful study and prepped for the animals that would use them as well. Existing structures needed to be inspected and repaired or torn down and rebuilt.
In short, there was an awful lot of work just waiting to be done.
And that wasn’t even taking into account the boxes that were stacked all the way to the ceiling and half a house deep in the front room.
“And I’d just finished getting the last house all the way organized.” A young woman groaned as she looked at the frightening tableau before her.
This ramble was brought to you by memories of my very first day at the new farm. It was a horrible moment that second before the next truckload of our stuff arrived and I had to get back to work.
