Arrived with the wind...

We all know that planning an outdoor work day in Colorado, in April is a tad dicey. Well, as you can see we had beautiful blue sky and at 8 am it was actually warm. By 9 am the wind was blowing so hard we were wondering if we would need the tractor to hold us on the ground.
We want to thank all the volunteers (18 total) who worked at cleaning out flower beds, removing and trimming wayward shrubbery, laying rock, building fence and moving furniture. A special thank you to Randy and Robin who brought their tractor and did some ground breaking for our garden, as well as pulling out some posts and a few things that ONLY a tractor with a front loader could accomplish.
At lunchtime we took a tour of the cottage industry site. We walked through the various steps taking fleece and making felt and also showed off our Gospel Green herbs. I heard that the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were close to gourmet!!
All in all it was a very productive day!! Thanks to a group of wonderful volunteers!
