Welcome to my blog, where a 30-something couple from the UK renovate and extend an old cottage, build some outbuildings, raise some hens and grow firewood trees and vegetables on our Acre in Hampshire. It's a bit like a smallholding but without too many animals, so we call it a homestead - living within our means, relying on ourselves and having a wonderful life!

More Storms

What a windy night last night! I had a nasty feeling that we might lose our Eycalyptus tree, which would have landed on my workshop, the Defender and our oil tank. Thank goodness it held.
We did lose some fence panels between our garden and our next door neighbours. These had previously blown out and were replacement panels. Fortunately they didn't break this time, and we could just slot them back in place.
One of the old, ivy covered trees had fallen to about 60 degrees and was in danger of taking out another fence. I hooked it up to the Landy and carefully pulled it back the other way and onto the grass. Tomorrow's job is to cross cut and split the trunk.
