Remember, I am 6 miles up on a mountainside in Colain all by myself.

 

Last field for this area, below the powerlines.

Bent the bar, wait for the torch to heat it and bend back, keep raking,....PB050024.JPG PB050025.JPG

 

Aaron came and started blowing when I was passing on through to the last field of the day.

Planet Jr. no. 2 seeder drill.

 

The lanterns are actually white gas stoves.

I was just going to ask if you did the winter pruning back, then came on the post above.  That's a huge job pruning an orchard!

  I have a green little Coleman stove like yours.  Had it since I was about 16yrs old.  40 years and I still have it, and it still works.  Was used when I got it!

My life is nothing but irony, grown accustomed to it.

 

Mines is the 502 built in 1966 and still works after years of use.

 

Here is my Roger Cook military gasoline stove with aluminum container/cook pot.

Looks like a lot of work and it needs to be done right. Did you grow up around orchards?

From time to time my work has led me to the apple trees, the old gnarly apples has always held a special place within me, one has to enjoy the tree to live within them.
