3., 4. The winter killed an apple tree on the electric company’s land and they let Billy take it.  He will make some nice turned bowls and carved spoons.  Apple wood tends to crack as it dries, so Billy is taking extra precautions to slow down the drying process to minimize cracking.  He couldn’t resist roughing out a spoon. This spoon will have to dry for some time before it is ready to be finished.

17.,18.,19.  The experiment has convinced me that something poison is in the peat I bought last year.  The results are compelling, however in order to prove that it is poison in the peat, not peat in general that stunts the growth I’m growing some seeds in peat that I bought this year.  The plants (wheat) have just emerged and this year’s peat is already ahead.

20.  We’re planning on selling our surplus products such as veggies, flowers and seedlings at a stand on our farm.  I’m in the process of making signs for the highway to let people know that we’re here.
