Recently, my sister Abriana and I took a three week trip to North Carolina to visit friends. When we came back, Daddy and Grant had a wonderful surprise in store!
They had remodeled the barn with so many improvements, it is like a new place! They were so kind as to think of everything I would need this coming lambing season to make things easier, such as this whole row of sturdy lambing pens with easily-opening gates in the front. Besides this, they made (on the far left, barely visible) a perfect spot where I can feed bottle lambs and have creep feed available. And that’s not all…they patched the roof and the cement floor, put in new gates so we don’t have to crawl over fences to get from place to place in the barn, designed a varmint-proof lid for the grain, and more. Oh yes, and repaired the feeding troughs! THANK YOU, Daddy and Grant!!!!!
The other latest project was begun just after Abriana and I came home. Grant and Daddy plowed up several new rows in our south field in which to put new blueberry plants at some point in the future. Daddy has already put sulfur on the rows in order to begin making the soil acidic enough for blueberries.
