We have enjoyed the simplicity of farm life so far. I won’t say it’s been easy. It’s just not complicated. We have central AC for the first time in 7 years. I love it. It will be more costly though. I think after working in the hot dry heat all day it’s worth keeping. I decided not to give myself the option of a dryer to save money. I know if I have it I’ll use it more than I want, and since we were going to have to buy an electric one (our old one is gas) I figured I could live with nothing but a clothesline.
Nick (we’ll call him future farmer) did a great job of buying, digging, cementing, leveling me a real nice line. I couldn’t wait to use it…but I did. Two whole days just to make sure the cement cured well.
Yesterday, I finally put it to use.
It didn’t go as I expected.
I guess the land that’s soft and easy to farm is too loose for a small hole with lots of weight. At least the clothes were dry by the time it fell. Here’s to round two.
