And there’s bad news. Unfortunately, it’s mostly bad.
I’ve had to tear up the vegetable garden. There’s no way around it. Regular readers are familiar with the fact that it’s a bit of a jigsaw puzzle around here with the teardown, the garden, the RV. We’ve discovered that the chimney has cracks, and looks like it’s twisting a little. Even building a barrier, if we were to take it down with the RV so close, something would certainly go wrong. So, the RV has to be moved. The only way to get a truck and hitch in to move the RV is to take down the vegetable garden.
The herbs have been hung to dry. I got a few carrots for dinner tonight. I’ll transplant a few of the tomatoes and zukes. The soil from the garden can be moved to level out the chicken run – I wanted to do that anyway, and didn’t have any extra fill. One does what one must, I suppose.
Meanwhile, I can’t find anyone to move the RV. The RV lots are prohibitively expensive (hundreds and hundreds). I put an ad on Craigslist and the local tow guy is coming to see if he has the correct hitch tonight. In the time being, I have a 15 foot junk wood pile in the way of a truck even getting in here. And the electric company has not called me back to schedule putting in the pole. Hope they don’t just show up unannounced.
Not a good day.
