The year we purchased a small rural farm (14 acres)
August : Settling in and surveying the area; a month of firsts.
September : Having visitors and touring the countryside
October : Keeping the spring grass down and planting out trees. John getting the watering system in place for summer on our new fruit trees
November : Getting started. Organising the nursery was a must for our future plantings throughout the property. The thistle removal was a novel idea, that has not been repeated. After the cows moved off, the thistles became very minimal.
December : December saw us baling our first lot of hay, preparing for our next years plantings with cuttings and soil preparations.
