Between our travel trailer, equipment trailer and portable sawmill we're no strangers to towing, and this week we added another trailer to our collection!
We visited the Rockler store in Salem, NH to pick up some exciting new tools - a Sawstop Jobsite Table Saw and Dewalt DW735X planer.
We built a 4x8ft log cabin-esque raised garden bed from nothing but spruce logs - perfect for starting our Hügelkultur garden!
Our projected final frost date is fast approaching so we've been planning this year's gardening projects and getting things ready to plant.
I built this simple but effective elevated planter so we can grow fresh herbs this summer - plus we can easily move it with our tractor if we want!
Even though we're still clearing trees for our house site, this week I've been working on installing a roof!
We continue to make progress with clearing the site, found time to make our first ever homemade maple syrup and traded for some fresh local eggs.
We tried making maple syrup from scratch for the first time by tapping our own trees and boiling the sap on a campfire - it was a delicious success!
Yes, it's March. And we're in Vermont. And it might have only been 45°F (7°C) on Monday evening but that didn't stop us having our first campfire of 2022.
We've been back in Vermont just over 2 weeks so the honeymoon is over and now it's time to get to work - building projects and felling trees!
