Thanks Joep.

Hay should be ready to cut again in about three weeks and it usually takes me over a month to get it in.

I wasn’t necessarily hauling for the money but making my work area where I could walk through it again .

Finally have an OBD2 scanner that isn’t just a Bluetooth to the phone bare basics.

It can tell me live data like spark advance and whatnot. I’d like to get some data jogged into memory before the Sierra gets a taste of chargas. Fingers crossed I get it done this weekend.

On the way back from argos this year i had some #2 copper i wanted to sell. Figured I’d get a better price near a larger city… i believe i got 3.55lbs.
It was enough to cover for the welder i bought earlier so i was happy.

Here the charcoal is slowly drying, some rain every other day, and high air humidity. I have to remember covering it when rain is on the way.


I’ve collected about a gallon a day, that i’ve sort out from the still wet charcoal. :cowboy_hat_face:

When I was leaving to Austria, I take one first bunches of this year harvest. After one week I have to face “ecological catastrophe” :rofl:

This is the rest after our children already harvested some 30 kg. And only the smaler patch in our backyard. The bigger one is almost three times of this

Kamil, you are clearly the most exemplary gardener in our community, I am quite ashamed to post pictures of my field, but nevertheless we have been picking tomatoes daily and eating them as a salad for two months, mostly we have the small ones, like cherries.

Wayne,
Is that for venison or do you have a wild hog problem like the Texans?

Even if the truck shooting stand is missing out on DOW, at least it is being pull by a truck DOW.
Do you move it around on the property a lot?
