Here in the RGV the great outdoors grow really fast! Even though we had about an acre of brush and diseased trees cleared and cleaned up (mostly), the remnants of plants began to grow everywhere! While it was great having someone else do the work, we decided to take-on the next go-around ourselves, just saying!
After a great deal of research and many discussions we decided to purchase our own Kubota Diesel Tractor, oh ya! Picked it up today and put it to work immediately. Garret is mastering the front loader and backhoe, like he’s driven a tractor before. We’re waiting for a couple of additional attachments to be delivered, and are working on some plans to help our little orange tractor pay for itself.
Meanwhile, progress with the house reno is moving slow. It appears that the contractor we hired has gone off the grid… no movement on the reno proposal for many weeks. So, we are now in the market for an electrician, plumber, framer, roofer and others who are going to help make our house whole.
