Looking for a simpler life, but not too simple…

Ironwood Farm

This is such an exciting place to be with so many learning opportunities. Since we arrived last Thursday I have: finished building a chicken coop, built fencing, installed gates, fed sheep, pigs, goats, cows, chickens, and our self’s with all the yummy food they have here. And I have also learned a bit of Spanish from one of the interns from Peru. Her name is Julie; she is really nice. I finally milked a cow and a goat for the first time.

This is me helping Z with the boat he made on irrigation day. I had to rake out tons and tons of leaves from the irrigation canal that day; I was pooped. We had to open up different canals from up to a 2 miles away to get water to the fields we seeded.

Help From Dad

Here are some shelf’s I made out of spare doors Chris had laying around:

This is the adobe floor I helped with and sealed:

Handmade Adobe Floor

I think this is my next project I am going to tackle. Its a corn sheller. As you can see it needs a little TLC.

We went to a local bar for St. Patty’s day were Chris was playing some Irish tunes on his guitar. The bar had some awesome beer by the way.
