After a couple of rainy weeks, it looks like we’re in for a cold spell. No complaints here. After all it is early January.

We’ve made some progress on the farm in the new year – cleaning up from tree sales and doing repairs and maintenance. Our Ford 801 almost ready to go after doing some engine work and replacing the sheet metal with some we got from a tractor junkyard in Tennessee last summer. Most of the painting was done with a brush so don’t look to close.

We sprayed one round of fungicide on the Leyland Cypress last week and will need to do another right away. There are still some little Leylands to plant in the field, but that’ll have to wait another week or two. By then it’ll be time to start pruning bottom branches on the young trees so they’ll fit in tree stands once they’re cut a few years from now.
