Two Days and Counting...

Yesterday was a work day unlike any the farm has ever seen.

Every inch of the property was manicured.
No blade of grass went untouched.

The property looks the best it has ever looked.
Even the perennials are cooperating.
Everything is in full bloom.

Amanda's Tim is spending the week with us, helping to do the heavy work.
We started out the morning moving the heavy whiskey barrels that I wanted to use to make a bar.
He carried them with the tractor...

then rolled them up the hill into the grape arbor.
I had found an old panel door at a local salvage which I had envisioned as the bar-top.

It fit perfectly into the space.

The old panel shutter that I use as my grocery list in the kitchen will serve as a drink menu...

By the time we finished that project, the tent arrived.

The rest of the day was spent laying out the tent.

By the end of the afternoon, it was finished.
It comes complete with string lights and fans.

If the weather is great on Saturday, we will remove the side walls to allow for better
air circulation.

Today we will run some last minute errands.
After that I will spend a little time laying out the dessert wagon (without desserts.)

Our bathroom trailer was delivered as well.
I'll share a few photos of that tomorrow.
I have never seen such a luxurious bathroom on wheels before!
