Well, it's been awhile since episode 11 came out; but if I said it was due to laziness, I’d be lyin’. There’re no two ways about it… things have been pretty busy around here the last few months. As always, I’m filming more farm and homestead footage, while tryin’ to put together previously filmed shows and manage a small homestead at the same time (all that while still enjoyin’ my dear family and havin’ the time of our lives!). I don’t want to tease you too much…but I had a meetin’ with myself a couple weeks ago and laid out the subject material for this year’s new shows. We (me and myself) were in unanimity with our excitement to present this next “season” of The Farm Hand’s Companion Show, which will begin Volume 2. I can’t wait for you to see what’s comin’ up!
I’ve been pretty eager to complete this latest show (episode 12) for a number of reasons; the chief one being that it completes the old-fashioned pole barn installments. In this episode you'll be able to see the finishing touches I applied to my pole barn workshop, both inside and out, along with some other options and applications a structure like this could be used for on the small farm. I’ve had a ball buildin’ the workshop, but I’m enjoyin’ usin’ it even more than I thought I would. As you’ll see in the show, my tools (the best ones, anyway) are all moved into the workshop and I’m pretty well settled in. However, the pole barn series is not all this 12th episode completes. It will also bring closure to what I’m going to call Volume 1 of The Farm Hand’s Companion Show. And in case some of you might have wondered—yes, this first volume of the FHC Show will be made available for purchase on DVD comin’ up later this year. Keep checkin' back here for upcoming particulars about that. I’m also still workin’ like crazy on a book that details the construction of an old-fashioned pole barn. That too, should be available for purchase some time later this year.
In a week or two or three I’ll have a companion post on the website which will contain a few more details on finishing out a pole barn. To check for it, mash on the “Buildin’ or Makin’” link over here to the left. You can also subscribe to the email update list (over here in the right hand column) and I’ll send an email bulletin on this or other posts as they become newly viewable.
For now though, hit on the video here below and enjoy the latest show called "Finishing Out and Settlin' In".
Gardening, raising livestock, woodworking...you name it...most facets of traditional farm topics will be covered from time to time. Within each of the categories you'll find posts, articles, or pictures that I think you'll like. I'll be posting new ones as often as the farm work permits. So keep checkin' back often for some fresh farm reading!
Look over here to the left and up a bit, then mash on any particular topic of interest to you.
