We got word last night that the builder is on site, has his temporary trailer set up, and has BEGUN WORKING!!!
Whoot! Yesterday they marked off the area and taped the trees so they knew which ones are staying and going.
The backhoe is due out today. He said he would transplant my apple tree, but as it has settled in nicely the last couple years and it is mid summer, I'm just not sure it's going to make it through the process. The backhoe is key to this and I am torn between praying for rain for the tree and the corn, and praying for no rain so the basement can be dug. Maybe just 2-3 rain events a week? It would get them through and not be too much of a hindrance, right?
*sigh* Hopefully I'll be back later this week with an update on that.
See you soon!
