Haunted Mill 2013

It is that time of year again. Time for scares, screams and zombies in the mill. This is our third year creating the haunted mill haunted house and maze inside the Summersville mill. This year we have more seniors to be spooks and more surprises inside the mill. The kids did a wonderful job setting up their own ideas for the maze and haunted scenes. And they are helping to take it all down after Halloween. Helps us a ton in sweat equity. And the funds collected will be used for their Senior trip and the mill restoration for the year.

Almost all darkness and lots of imagination and zombies this year at the mill.

Walnuty 'o Plenty

Last week a friends son asked if he could come over and collect black walnuts from our farm. It was a great idea as I just trip over them and they just rot on the ground. He gets paid per 100 lbs enough for gas money. So off we went to collect the nuts.

He was able to get an almost full pick bed full.

The best tool ever for picking up nuts . No bending and no stooping. This tool was fun to roll along the ground as well. Until you hit a rock or a dog pile. Had to be vigilant.

Unloading the UTV  and filling up the pick up. Our UTV has a dump bed for just this kind of farm chore. This year was a great year for walnuts. Plus our friend's son got permission to pick up on the neighboring farms as well. It was a worth while trip for everyone. Fun way to spend a Saturday in the fall.
