We wanted to give everyone an update about what's been going on around here the past week.
First, we started demolition of the cidery floor by exposing the subflooring; this meant that we needed to rip up a layer of plywood. We made quick work of this task thanks to the youthful vigor of Collin Cunning, Galen’s brother, who was visiting for a couple of days.
We also had our contractor out for appraisals and are planning to move forward with shoring up the floor next week (barrels of cider are heavy!).
Additionally, it’s apple feeding time! Our neighbors have generously donated horse manure; that, combined with some free gypsum board found on Craigslist, will make for a nutritious meal come springtime for young apple trees.
Finally, we have been enjoying our new puppy Evoo; she loves to chew on sticks, wrestle with her stuffed cow, and lick feet.
Can’t wait until Miss E the kitty cat, who has been quite skeptical about the recent addition, realizes she has a new buddy to play with.
That’s all for now. We’ve got 18 days left in order to meet our campaign goal. We’d love your support (money is great and sharing our story with others is fantastic!).
