That means 11 hours of other. However, harvest can take a lot of time, but then again, so does grocery shopping. So, I guess I might not know until it happens. Anyone achieve this bragging right?
Well, my half acre lawn is also a 30 tree fruit orchard, so it takes about the same amount of time to mow as a similar sized yard. With the the wood chips around the trees, the actual area that needs to be moved is less than half an acre, but circling the trees with the mower slows things down. Every time I'm out there mowing, I get a little envious of those straight as an arrow orchards that are easy to mow...
I child proofed my house but they still get in. Distract them with this tiny ad:
