We finally moved the propane tank out of our garden! Besides making the garden look better (because I care about that sort of thing, remember?), this frees up a good amount of space for us to plant more vegetables. It's also one less thing to weed and till around and one less hiding place for snakes. Oh, and the propane man won't have to come into our garden to fill up the tank.
Much better, don't you think? Of course, moving it was the simple part. We still had to run the gas line to its new location and hook it back up again. Thankfully, my dad was here with his trencher to help Colton.
By about 3:00 that afternoon, they had the trench dug, the line run, and everything all hooked up again.
Since my dad was here with his trencher, he and Colton also dug the lines to run water and electricity to the garden shed and chicken coop. This is also huge!

Colton is hoping to get everything hooked up in the next few days. Once that is done, all the lines will be buried and I can get back to planting a garden.
I'd like to give a special thanks to my dad for all of his help. He saved us a lot of time, money, and labor. I'm glad he was a part of helping us create this important part of our life, and we appreciate everything he did to make this happen!
