Is It February or April?

With such nice weather this weekend we ended up doing some gardening. Sam started preparing some of our outside beds for planting bulbs and other early items. I moved the first lettuce and spinach to the hoop house and planted more inside. The grow lights are almost full and a few things still need to be planted this week. So far peas, tomatoes, peppers, and a few flowers are started. Although I am starting many fewer plants in the garage this year, I still need more space.
The other news is that the trailer has moved to its new home. The frame has been wire-brushed and is ready for a good cleaning and a paint.

She's Naked

The trailer that is. Last weekend the trailer and associated pieces were moved to the new shop location. Beforehand I pulled off the last of the plywood floor.
Upcoming activities include:
1. Sand, clean, paint frame.
2. Outfit with new subframing.
3. New plywood floor.

Shastoration Sunday

The trailer is almost down to nothing. We are loading things up and getting ready to move to a new shop. The entire aluminum skin stacked up into a nice little pile ready to be traded in for beer money.

 The plywood subfloor was bolted to the frame using carriage bolts and square nuts. I tried to unbolt them and the carriage heads just spun. Everything was rusted together so I had to cut through every bolt. Good news, the frame is in good shape and will clean up nicely.
 The floor is partially rotten and needs to get removed in pieces. But, it is coming along now and shouldn't be long before
