I am getting frustrated with the slow progress, although I have actually accomplished a great deal.
The first greenhouse is nearly finished and the pollinator garden seeded over the septic. I am starting to free range the chickens when I can supervise them. Trimmed an apple tree and started on the cherry. Took out several other trees. I stopped waiting on the people who said they would help me with spreading the woodchips and I am doing it by hand.
Trees are starting to arrive but I am having a hard time sourcing a lot of what I need. So far, three apples, three pears, three chestnuts, an almond seedling, a peach seedling, and an apricot seedling are in the ground. The polycultures will have to wait until I can propagate the plants.
It's early for the seedlings, but I want to see how they do. The almond is struggling with the constant wind, so I'll plant those in another area.
Still trying to figure out a winter heatsource and water catchment. Doing the contouring, slowly. Trying to find a way to get fencing delivered, short of hiring someone.
Lots of etc. I need to remember that I have only been here six months, and cut myself some slack.
