Ganesha was smiling on the farm today. I’ve been working at freeing this place from under all the debris left by the previous owners since I moved here last October, and today was a huge step forward. Scrap-It, a metal recycling company near me delivered a 30-yard dumpster last week, and today I finished (thanks so much to Bob Jones for his help!) packing it with all the rusty equipment and misbegotten fencing and other metal treasures that I’ve been harvesting from the fields over the last ten months. I’ll call them on Monday to take it away, and if the metal weighs enough, they might even pay me for it. The only disheartening part is that there’s probably another dumpster’s worth of metal yet to collect.
