Barn is finished , time to clean up.

It was just one month ago that we started pouring the foundation for the new barn.  It is hard to believe the transformation.  Today was the clean up day and a day to put finishing touches on the pens .  We planted some more veggies , tomatoes, egg plants, more broccoli, and two peach trees. We also got some of the piles of gravel cleaned up and spread on the new drive way in front of the barn.   It was fun to watch the rabits and goats when they moved into there new digs.  They were so happy, Acelbek is pretty happy too. he is a gardener at heart , and is thrilled to get his hands into the dirt.  

We were going to bring out the bees tomorrow, but decided to hole off a few days. Tomorrow we will be having an open house and ploff . It is a custom here that if you get something new like a car or a new fence our basically anything new, you have to have a party and invite all your fiends to celebrate.  One friend told how he one a dance contest and it had a small cash prize, He said that the party cost him twice as much as what he won. So tomorrow we will celebrate.   We thought it was best that we not bring thousands of angry mixed up bees at the same time.

this fence is our second line of defense if the goats get out  they can't get to the garden.  we still have the fence on the other side of the garden to put up. something for next week.

this  spot we will plant grass . today we put in two peach trees
