Dare to Live a Dream —- Thursday, April 18, 2019

We have been cleaning up around the farm.ย  Moving things here and there, hauling stuff to the dump, sorting things into piles for Rec-Metals, and raking and cleaning around the buildings

Even though the huge heavy work,

of the main production part of the farm is no longer ours, the hillsides, the flat tops of the hills, the pastures (six of them) and the upkeep of the farm itself is still ours.

PLUS…the shrinking of my yard

Sometimes the works seem endless (since some of this had to be put off until we had time)

But yesterday after lunch we rented a stump grinder and began

It too three steady hours

To reduce it to this!

Now I get to level and seed it to grass! YaY!

So exciting…a clean, new slate to give life to a new dream!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. I’ve had good luck with Mother of Thyme aka creeping thyme as a ground cover. You can walk on it and when you do it smells good!


  2. If filling the space in with more lawn that important? When I want to get rid of stumps, I plant zonal geraniums around them and let them rot. Watering the geraniums occasionally through summer accelerates the process. If it is really in the way, I let it dry, and then burn it.


    • At my age it is … I’m 70 and I MUST slow down, mowing the lawn is much, much easier. The weeding and the watering of the flower beds were starting to wear me clear out. I have to move to the mowing the lawn for my health.
