Extended arm work
After some more chair sitting around the yard I cut the plastic barrel in two. I plan to use the larger piece to mix chicken feed seed together for the chickens. I used the torch to burnish the edges by melting the plastic a bit. That made them nice and smooth.
I only had about 8 more loads of mulch to haul to this garden to finish mulching it so I got that done. The plants in this picture are kale. My brother Tom grows this stuff for the farmer’s market. It seems to be a hardy plant. These have been growing all summer and haven’t been picked as he hasn’t needed them yet. They just keep growing at the tips and seem to last a long time.
Ride in the forest checking out roads
In the afternoon I fired up the dirt bike and took a ride up into the forest to have a look around for any water damage from the last big storm.
I found this spot where the fire guys didn’t do a good job out-sloping the old road which caused the rain water to start washing things out here. I will have to get this fixed the next time I fire up the bulldozer or eventually it will washout the whole road.
That was the worst place I found but there are some other places that could use a little fixing too. Fifteen inches of rain in 24 hours can do a lot of damage if things are just right. Most of the roads held up well during that storm.
A little hike
And from there I worked my way home for some chair hopping.
The kat came by and gave me a big stretch, meaning how about letting me in for some more chow.
