I'm told by both TK and by Tony the bank dude (yes, that is how I have him listed in my cell phone) that we should hear something from the appraisal soon...as in the next couple of days. This is so unnerving. I'm mostly worried that the appraisal will be too low and we will be back to square one (or two since we already own the land).
I did have the pleasure of visiting the old house I grew up in since its in foreclosure now and I have to say that I thought I might be more interested in buying it at one time but in reality its just too much work. It was a little sad to visit memory lane, after all I did get married there, had my sweet sixteen birthday there and so much more. The house is in some disrepair but not unlivable or impossible to make nice. Its also going for a bargain so I REALLY hope that someone who buys it will fix it up and really love it. Houses that old really deserve to be well loved.
I did get some pruning done in the last few days. All of the fruit trees have now been fall pruned and the trees on the back acre have been relieved of their water sprouts and dead limbs. By fall pruned I mean pruned to restrict growth. I'm really hoping to properly train our fruit trees to be a manageable size and highly productive. I'm also really hoping we actually get a few pieces of homegrown fruit next year. We still need to fortify and possibly move our blueberries, plant the new honeyberries and goji fruits I just received yesterday and move the surviving raspberries into our windbreak. Lots to get done before winter :) Oh and we have more orchard trees (1 each apricot, apple, nectarine and asian pear) on the way and 3 additional blueberries. Some year we should have a crazy amount of produce from our own land...I can't wait.
