the barn

i wish we had an old fashioned barn raising where all the neighbors come. the men work like crazy and pull the barn up in a day, the women put out a potluck spread and visit while the children run and play... our barn raising was not quite so romantic, but none the less, we are excited to have our new barn.

C with his dad by the new barn. this day they were planting our orchard at the future homestead site: 2 pear trees, 2 cherry trees, 10 apples trees (macintosh, red rome, jonathon, honey crisp, and gala) ...if you can call them trees, they look a little more like twigs. it might be awhile before we are baking those pies! i'll post pictures sometime of the new orchard.

Wow!! I had no idea and then there it is!! Isn't that quite a barn!?

Can we just move in to the hay loft or something?
