True to her word, she showed up with her work shoes and her happy disposition firmly in place. Remember, this is the lady who coined the phrase, "too much nature," when she encountered things like bugs and worms here at the farm.
I had a very important job that has needed doing for a couple of weeks, and we really had to take advantage of the rainless skies to get it done. One person alone (me) would struggle with this simple job, but two hands would make light work. We found our stride and worked great together - what a team!
Jill and I assembled the raw ingredients I had purchased to turn our old sheep hut into a serviceable greenhouse for us to grow greens during the winter.
And in short order (and with only a little help from the sheep) we had it operational. Now, all we need is the other structure for the sheep to get in out of the weather and we can turn this enclosure over to the seeds and seedlings. But that's a bit larger project, for another day. Step by step, we'll get there.
Nothing like a little dirt on your knuckles and some sheep poop under your nails to get that satisfying sense of a job well done.
