Look Ma - no hands !

T and Don, mechanic extraordinaire, spent many blissful hours installing and tinkering with an automatic gate opener, involving many trips to hardware stores and some custom made parts by Don.

The gate is powered by solar panels and a mere click of the button opens and closes it. No need to get out of the car any more !

But not to worry, despite all this new-fangled high tech stuff, things haven't changed all that much here at the farm.

Our neighbor has moved his cows into the field next door and the apple trees are heavy with ripening fruit, pointing the way to the next season, and the promise of a bountiful harvest.

Those solar panels look INTIMIDATING!! They look like some kind of laser-home defense!

Should keep them cows in line. :)
