well - i still have not had the time to explore and get my chops around linux and bodhi and also many of the apps i need to use. just been exhausted trying to get all that it takes to get my small homestead and vineyard going. redid my entire garden for about 6 months and still tweaking. espaliered fruit trees are tedious.
already harvesting stuff and strawberries in maybe 3 weeks. have to redo maybe 25 vines. so that is a bitch. less harvest one more year at least. last year's wines just knock me out and am struggling to hold on to some for aging.... WOW!!!!
major dent after 2-3 years in my 2500 plus tons of firewood. woodstove is so sweet ...
sitting in my kitchen and a stove going with a single malt glenfiddich or a bottle of my wine or bought pinot noir just makes the day and life stellar.
planted hundreds of evergreens that surround my property that really makes this place a secret hideaway.
people drive by and do not even know i am here and even my clients or esp my relatives drive right buy and say - where the hell is he????
chickens laying nicely too.
potatoes up = and garlic ready to pick under 1 1/2 month.
275 garlic, 78 potatoes, 375 onions, and figs are popping too.
welcome zen farm/ skeldale farm and gray wizard vineyard/winery.
also maybe 12 different rare japanese maples most are dissectum.
Have good year!!!!
