Land Baron

Now that I’m a land baron, I must have the proper machinery to take care of my stead:


That’s our new John Deere D110. I picked it up a few weeks ago. In just a few weeks I’ve managed to learn how to mow the whole property (1.1 acres) in about 2 hours. Including the meadow. One of the big adjustments from living downtown to living in suburbia is lawn care. Given that we’ve got (relatively speaking) a very large lawn, this has become quite the endeavor. I’ve been out cutting low branches, picking rocks, planting grass in different areas and more. I feel like George W. Bush circa 2004. You know, clearing brush on the ranch.

Next on my list? Building a picnic table for out back. I’m going to do it myself.
