Our Barn Raising

We have had a slow patch, with some poor weather and no progress, but the past two days have made up for it. 
Our “barn” is going up, and it is very exciting.  With the help of my Father-in-law and Brother-in-law, I got most of the back and side panels up, and half the roof.  The rain may end up putting a halt on construction tomorrow, but at least it doesn't look like a yard deck anymore.  My brother-in-law is a pro at this, so this might not qualify as a DIY project.  

We also got the chance to plan a portion of our fencing thanks to my Father-in-law, who has loads of experience corralling farm animals.  Our needs are not quite that serious but we do need to keep our two “wild humans” contained, and of course keep hungry foragers out. 

In addition, we have added a few minor project items that  we will be trying our hand at in the next couple days.  We have a cool new seed starting kit, which we will be trying out.  The next thing we will be attempting is Kefir.  This is way out of my comfort zone.  This is Shannon’s thing, I really don’t even know what it is.  I think we will be growing yogurt smoothies in mason jars.  Kidding everyone…I know what it is, but “growing” it will be a major learning experience for both of us.  We will let you know what happens.

Thanks for reading, and please stayed tuned for completion of building, and some smaller projects/ experiments we'll be starting in the days to come.
