As for the gambrel, we outsourced this work. By the time I get to a roof, I’ve completely had it with ladders and I would never be able to do as good a job as professionals with standing seam tools.
I’ve been hitting a bunch of rocks with the mowers all Summer long. A few minutes with a tractor are all it takes to pop them out. I’m very happy to see these guys go. Except one which is too massive to go anywhere, I just put the soil back on it and pretended like nothing happened.
We are at 10 gallons for the season. I wish I could say they suffice to our yearly consumption.
