Tuesdays on the Farm

Was thinking that since I wrote in the intro
  "working the orange orchard"
I should maybe write about it from time to time,
 along  with the rest of the farm.  

Obviously.... my blogging hasn't had much long term thought!
Anyway............ I'm going to dedicate Tuesdays to the farm. 

Here's a project we started today.  This piece of ground is no-mans-land, 
it lays between the kitchen garden and the horse pasture.
One of those place that gets everything dumped on it.

We've been needing to finish fencing in the back yard for the dogs and
I've been wanting to build a compost bin and clean up this part of the yard,
for some time.      Finally got JS to agree!!!!!

As you can see the footing is dug and a retaining wall will go around the 
oak tree.  The dirt will be leveled out on top of the wall.
A fence will go across the top and a gate across the lower level.
This will give the dogs more room, when they have to be pinned up.

I'm pretty excited !!!!! .....  ;D
