Well we rented the farm for the month of August. Good news it pays the taxes, bad news tenants are far from tenant farmers and the first few days brought many issues, mostly solved. It seems we aren’t neat freaks and a few dead flies and having to take the great Blackstone away from his beloved barn (she’s “deathly” allergic to cats) have started us off on the wrong foot.
I have a friend from the Berkshires who says if you rent your house always wait three days before any communications with the tenants. By then they have gotten used to all the house’s faults.
Therefore some of the posts will be further afield until after Labor Day. I put a sleeping bag and my fishing tackle up at the lake so I can sneak up there of an evening late.
