Here's our outdoor thermometer reading well over 90 F in the sun today. The humidity is also way up -- dew point of 72 F, which means this is a very uncomfortable kind of air that Maine doesn't often get.

Too hot to work outdoors, that's for sure.

I worked on the truck this morning, while it was a little cooler. I scraped and wire-brushed the rust with the air-hammer and angle grinder, and painted the underside with the pneumatic sprayer, and fitted the new drums.

I need a bit more paint to get a little better coverage.

And I need my new leaf springs to be delivered.

Come on, Fedex. I'm sure your vans are air-conditioned, right?

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
