Captain of Industry

Seven days and roughly 70+ hours later the barn's up. It happened so quickly that I'm beginning to wonder if it weren't just deposited there by some benevolent extraterrestrial beings. The whole process has been a blur. I'm worn out. By the end of today I finished nailing the purlins to the roof rafters, framed in the gable ends and started boarding. In one big day I could finish boarding the rest of the building. How about two days to board and trim. A day to screw the metal roof down. By the end of the week I should be hanging pictures inside.

I've got an order in for four apple trees and a peach from Five Star in Brooklin. The apple varieties are Duchess of Oldenburg, Liberty, Tompkins King and Golden Russet. The four varieties all have dessert and/or cider qualities. I'll round out the orchard with a few more apple trees and maybe a cherry tree next spring.

We're preparing for our departure from Block Island. Two weeks to go.
