Here’s a little update on what’s going on since demo day next door. This morning we headed to the neighborhood hardware store and rented the ditchwitch. Right now my son is on the site of what will be the Pie Cottage garden and orchard, trenching a ditch in order to have power to the shop building just behind him in the picture. I just ran out and grabbed a couple of pictures so that you can see it, too.
At one time, the structure was a well kept garage but during the years before I bought it, it had become really run down, and just before the previous tenant left, they stripped out all the wiring and fixtures. I was told that most likely the copper in the wiring was sold off…probably for things I don’t really want to know about.
The ditch is growing longer and deeper with every passing minute…
…and on Friday the electrician is scheduled to arrive and soon there will be power once again!
Friday Update: Today, I made an old fashioned apple pie in a big 9″ deep dish pie pan and served it still warm to the electricians and my son. This pie, which usually serves six to eight, served three hungry men. You may want to amend the recipe. 😉
