    Hello all,
    Took some time away due to some life changes, kept an eye on some of the threads while away.
    During my time away we moved from the city of Memphis to the next county over and in country (no city ordinances to deal with).
    Only a little 2 acre home, but in the last 1.5 years we've planted 45 fruit and nut trees, started a garden, increased by chicken flock from 3 to 27 layers (currently have 6 birds ready to graduate to the freezer), and I'm currently working starting to build a detached garage/shop for my woodworking.
    Last year for my B-day picked up a small Kubota tractor (BX2370) for mowing and to help with our hunting property maintenance (bush hogging, box blade).
    My kids are growing up fast and they are doing much better in the county school than in the big city school they were in. Taking time with the kids on raising animals and working in the garden, doing whatever we can to keep them off of the electronic devices.

    Looking forward to getting back into the Monkey tree!

    Yeah, we build a fire pit in the back yard, we love going out with a few drinks and sitting by the fire.
