Yesterday proved unexpectedly busy as my brother’s promised job finally materialized. Around here it seems to be normal to call people the day you want them to start working. I often find myself wondering if any of the locals have heard of the odd concept of planning ahead.
Anyway that threw off our plans as my brother had to shift focus abruptly. So my big project was moving the milk jugs.
We’ve been saving them in hopes of getting a large supply if walnut syrup next year. To store them I’ve been hanging them under the front porch. However that was both unsightly and impractical because the rope had a tendency to stretch leaving the jugs dangling too close to the dirt.
Now I have them hung on a clothes line in the barn. Best of all, this tiered system uses the vertical space so I can keep collecting.
