6.19.21 Thirty nine days til festival (first pack in day)

Today was a wonderful day at the farm. We started out slowly due to the rain. It seemed it was going to quit but then it just kept sputtering. That’s okay, right?

Coffee was served and a quick little conversation with our friend Becky. Becky came in from Chicago. That’s a solid drive, especially leaving Chicago on a Friday night after. full work week. She is a fixer upperer. She came in for the weekend to work on the plumbing. We shared some food over the tiki torches last night. The fire wood was wet so there wasn’t a fire this morning.

Women started showing up. They just started showing up. And we got to work. There were several projects going on and it was an amazingly productive day…

especially considering the torrential (but fortunately, intermittent) storms we got today.

Projects completed:

Shower knobs replaced and all showers timed to 1.5 minutes.

Installed new float on holding tank, determined it will not work for our purposes, will continue brainstorming for plumbing solutions. Next plumbing work crew: weekend of July 17. 2021.
