I had mentioned I had plans

By Metalbone Ranch

I mentioned earlier that I have some ideas of where i want to go with this project.  I guess I should spell them out here so remember them for later.  This whole site is more of a public journal of what I am doing.  Lets hope I can keep on track. Goal number one –…

New Home New way

By Metalbone Ranch

This year I decided to do more about gardening than just throwing some seeds in the ground and hoping for the best.  I have invested a bit of cash and am starting my garden in January.  January!? Yep thats right, right smack dab in the middle of the cold season.  Typically I will get out…

Spring is busier than normal. Or is it?

Layout

By Metalbone Ranch
