early days

Arrival of our home-sweet-home

Hopefully you have seen our pictures of the grand arrival of our mobile home.

Monday morning we took off work and headed out to the farm at our usual 4:00 am departure.  We drove to Byhalia and woke up Pat so that we could pay him for the trailer.  It was dark when we arrived but by the time he had walked me through the trailer to show me all the work he had done and give me lots of details about the electrical system that went in one ear and out the other, it was daylight.

Riding mowers and farm subsidies

We have a new addition to our farm! 

Randy had been thoroughly scouring Craig's List on an almost daily basis looking for lawn mowers, both push and riding.  Making phone calls, doing research, weighing the pros and cons.  We did end up buying a used push mower, which we took to the farm this weekend.  

Work day #3: bush-hogging!

Work day #3: bush-hogging!

Yesterday was work day #3 at the farm.  Randy and I are in the routine now of waking up at 3 am and getting on the road by 4 am.  I tried herbal tea instead of coffee, which doesn't really agree with me, only to discover that pre-dawn drives should not be attempted without caffeine.  

Second visit to the farm

Yesterday Randy and I went to visit the farm for the second time since we closed on the property.  With our busy schedules including the GrowMemphis booth at the Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market on Saturdays, Sunday is really the only day we can get up there.

The alarm went off at 3:00 am and we were on the road by 4:00 am.  It was a beautiful drive out.  Mist hung over the road and the air cooled dramatically once we were beyond the city.  We were there before sunrise and the songbirds were calling out in the pre-dawn light.
