-get doors on the front and back of the barn

-move feeders since we got the pastures seeded and cannot use them now

-build a milking stanchion

-finish the tack/feed room organization

-get horses shoed

-make a cheese press

-make a filter system for the cow's milk

-get the rest of the garden in

-stake up the raspberries 

-build a trellis for the new grapes

-trench around the barn so the south stalls stop flooding

-tear out dead shrubs etc from previous owner and replace with herbs

-clean out irrigation ditches and get the system set up

Oh good grief.  Maybe this wasn't a good idea.  I just thought of about 10 more things, lol.

 

Mind sharing about your cheese press plans?  We were gonna do the simple one on this page.  http://biology.clc.uc.edu/Fankhauser/Cheese/Cheese_5_gallons/Cheese_press/PRESS_SETUP_00.htm

Well, we've gotten some of the things done.  Should have more done but we got sidetracked on to other projects that weren't even on the list.  Oops!  Or maybe not, because they did need to be done.  

 

Hows your list coming along Chicky?

Ok, yeah, none of it got done yet, except for being ALMOST done w/fencing the perimeter....  LOL!  However, we did go to remove some bees from someone's shed, but then it turned out to be just scouter bees, and no colony (yet).  Then we got in our 3 hives and discovered wax moths.  Ugh. 

 

We got mowing done, and then had bad storms (including a small tornado that hit our house and several others nearby, thankfully no bad damage/injuries).

 

We bartered for rabbit hutches and another buck.

 

I totally understand about getting side tracked!  Happens all.the.time here.  And we'll skip around from project to project, depending on time/funds available, but eventually it all gets done, lol.  We have another bee job to go look at asap, too, and who knows how many other things won't get done because of it!
