The sheep are pretty efficient lawnmowers. This was previously mowed with a riding mower, but I'm happy to have the sheep take care of it for me. There's probably an acre of grass. I'm going to think about ways to make this easier -- while the electronet fencing does work, it can kill the sheep, too.
Todays blackberry bingo was an entire farm cart of aluminum irrigation pipe. This stuff is actually pretty valueable as just metal -- aluminum is over $2/lb, and there's probably a ton of it here. Some of it has been damaged over the years, but most of it is in pretty useable shape. I'll have to sort through it to see what I can salvage.
The tires on the pipe trailer have long since departed. I wonder how long this cart has been sitting out here? Rubber takes a long time to rot.
I finally found the corner marker for the east corner of the property. I much prefer to have land surveyed when I buy it, particularly acreage, because you can then set fences correctly and understand exactly what you have to work with. It took me two days to find this marker; the surveyors must have balanced on a log to drive in the rebar. The actual corner is on the right. The wood stake is just a flag to make it easier to see.
