Summer and fall are starting to intertwine in the woods, just like they are in the garden.  Our "unused" 56 acres really pull their weight, providing us with unlimited natural beauty and a great buffer from our neighbors.

That said, a few neighbors made the half mile trek back to our trailer Saturday afternoon, beers in hand.  One suggested that we could sell the siding from our hundred year old barn for $17 per board foot.  This price seems phenomenal to me --- could it have been the beer speaking?  Surely our barn isn't worth tens of thousands of dollars?
