Some Upcycling Posts Are Coming Your Way ~

Earth Day 2016 is coming up on April 22nd! 
Seeing as it's spring here, we've been working on some projects around the homestead.
Two projects we worked on this weekend came about due to timing. 
Opportunity arose & other projects immediately went to the old back burner!

Two different neighbors were spring cleaning and had some piles that were destined for the landfill. Free for the taking we jumped on it and rather than add to our junk collection we went straight to work incorporating them into the landscape. 

The haul: broken concrete the likes of which were delivered in the bucket of a Cat 450e. We have quite a bit left, enough to go around the firepit and possibly a small path next to the house. 
We have a Kubota BX23 but let's take a moment to salute our neighbors with BIG TRACTORS! Thanks for the loan of that bad boy :)

We also scored a barrel that was oddly cut in half diagonally and came complete with sweet patina & 2 spouts.

I've cropped these shots tight because I'm not ready to reveal the whole area & my pond is so green it's embarrassing! 
I've got tadpoles in there and need to figure out if there's something I can do that won't harm them.

Happy upcycling ~
