On the Side

Since we stopped dairy farming this spring, we have been trying to find our footing in our new journey. One opportunity that has come for us is Zachary being able to spend more time as a woodworker. A hobby that we both enjoy. Zachary has been working on some projects for my parents, and has built a few garden pieces to display for sale. After advertising some of his work on Craigslist, today we sold a custom built arbor. We assembled the arbor today, with Zachary cutting and fitting, and myself on sanding duty. We delivered the arbor and installed and leveled it for our customer. She was very happy with it. It is nice to earn a little extra money doing something that you enjoy.
Zachary is in the middle of making a water wheel for my parents. We'll be putting up pictures of that soon, as it is quite a contraption.

That is a beautiful arbor! Wouldn't that look nice in the garden with beans growing up it?

That is great idea, and tasty.
