Touring the Construction Site
Posted by Sharkey
Now that Francesca’s eye is better, I wanted to take her around the farm so she could see some changes going on. She was sort of out of commission for a few weeks and missed a lot. Now it’s catch up time!
1 Sharkey! What's going on here? This is where the gigantic compost piles used to be.
2 Now it's a full blown construction site! Sharkey, do you know anything about this?
3 Francesca, you missed a lot with your eyelid sewn shut! Martha is having a new metal storage unit built and this was the only place to put it, where it would be tucked away and out of sight.
4 The whole process will take a few weeks. They've already graded the site and poured the cement footing and foundation.
5 Now they're back filling around the foundation with drainage pipes and gravel and will next start working on the floor.
6 I'm told that the building will arrive in pieces on a flatbed truck for assembly.
7 Wow, it's amazing to think a whole new building can go up that quickly! But what about all of the compost?
8 Franny, the compost piles were all moved over there. Don't worry, there is still plenty of compost for all of the plants on the farm!
9 Good, I would hate to run out of compost! Do you know that some people call it black gold because of all its beneficial qualities in the garden?
10 I wonder what Martha is going to put in this new storage unit? I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
