So I am going to open up the possibility of people joining me for a work/stay for a couple of days. The chores would mainly be weeding, picking potato bugs, with a little bit of harvesting and planting thrown in for good measure.

We have a 5 bedroom 1865 farmhouse on 13 acres with a 40 foot heated pool. I would hope for 4 to 6 hours of working each day which would leave lots of time for swimming, walking the paths through the wooded area, reading, napping or exploring the area.

If anyone is interested, a Thursday to Friday night or Saturday morning stay would work the best.

We do have two dogs. They basically just seek out the shade in the dog day afternoons or keep an eye on me as I work away. Although in the cool of the early evening they love to catch the cuz or "squirrel".
