A Part Time Farmer…

On my YouTube channel I cover a lot of timber framing as that is what I am working on during the season leading up to the extreme busyness of summer in cold country.  It’s a life living in a cold climate that makes summer a blur of activity and the winters a slow march towards warmer weather and a slow setting n of cabin fever if you can’t find the will to get outside and battle the elements.

Right now we are into the full swing of the summer rush.  I am in the yard every night working on haying equipment until the clock turns into the next day and my body reminds me that I still have to get up early in the morning to go to my day job that allows me to live this life in security.

The cows are easy to take care of this time of year, all I have to do is make sure they have fresh water and rotate the grazing every couple of days.  It is also the time of year that all of those building projects that are put off during the winter have to get done.  So as you can see, summer is hell at times but a blessing at the same time.

So this blog site and the YouTube channel will be taking a different direction over the summer months and into the fall, there will still be timber framing but it won’t be nearly as much as the spring time season had.  This time of year will be devoted mainly to the hay operation, from repairs to the work of it.  So I invite all of you to follow along and see what else we do up here in the frozen north.

  1. Jim,
    I’ve been following your blog and youtube channel. Keep up the good work. Get some rest along the way.

    1. Thank you. There will be plenty of rest hopefully come winter. I’m one of those people who has a lot of trouble sitting still, the price is lack of sleep!
      On a different note I see you had a response from Jim Rogers on the channel, that guy really knows his stuff and is a great resource to learn from.

  2. Very well done. Interesting videos.
    And I’m not easily impressed…….no brag. Just fact.
