But they are tiny and hold nothing. Granted my bottom freezer isn’t near big enough either which is why I have a chest freezer.
Did you miss the conversation? That really isn't true anymore. We have a ton of room in ours. Two drawers and five shelves wide enough to hold a half sheet pan.

our bottom freezer feels huge, id say it stores like 1/3rd of what the chest freezer does.

wow, its actually more than half of the chest freezer.

Chest freezer is a midsized 13cuft one. Bottom freezer in the fridge is 8.93 cubic feet.

The old fashion reel mower made short work of my weeds/"lawn" once again. Still need to get a weedeater running as there's lots of stuff to trim around but I'm sold on this thing for the open areas. As long as you don't let it get too tall between cuttings there is no downside and a few benefits.

Nothing beats a decent reel mower for uniformity too. Ask a golf course maintenance crew.

I pruned the apple and other fruit trees this weekend. As well as the only 3 mature trees on the property, some maples. Had a bunch of crossing branches that were growing into the trunks. Chainsaw and electric pole saw make short work of that. Also put up a hose reel. Next project is repairing a bad patch of lawn, I believe it was killed by grubs. Grub killer applied. Need to lay down some new top soil and lawn seed to fix that.

you have that much land and only a couple trees? Mostly old field?

Glad for emergency fund. This septic thing sucks. Ended up needing an entire new field too. Had something called "orangeburg" pipe, which is literally made of cardboard. It was actually in fine shape, but is illegal.

also.... never ever get work done that requires permit inspections anywhere near a holiday weekend. County inspectors "might" come out later this week. Dudes had to fill in all the holes they dug for liability reasons, and theyre gonna have to dig them again when the inspector decides to come.

Yup. When the previous owners built the house, they clear cut the woods on the top of the hill, literally leaving 3 mature maple trees. Everything else scoured from property. It gets a little windy up there. Planting some other stuff to help cut down on snow drifts and wind noise.

Red is property line.
Orange is the 3 mature maple trees.
Yellow are some apple and other fruit trees planted by the previous owner. Ones out in the field may have been there awhile longer, they're decent size now (tall enough that deer can't eat the leaves or apples off the branches).

Google Earth photo is several years old. Don't ask me why they tilled the field in weird shapes.

Mike knows where you live now.

He found Domon when Domon had rotated and flipped the picture or something stupid.
