Ok, so I have been inactive on my posts.  The reason for this is, that temporarily our lives have been less about farming than about finding my daughter and son-in-law an affordable place to live.  The problem is, banks don’t want to loan money on fixer uppers, and they would prefer not to loan less than $60,000.  Well, when they tell you that you can’t really afford a mortgage more than $43,000, what is a person to do?  Thankfully, these two have us who are willing to temporarily help them find an affordable place and fix it up in a way the bank will accept it.  So we did just that.  We found a fixer upper we could buy affordably and are trying to stick to a budget of $10,000 to fix it up, which of course means that we don’t get to hire anyone to do any work. . .Here is what we found in a small town near us, but closer to our son-in-law’s job:
