Foundational to any good homestead is a good clothesline.

My brother-in-law helped me sink these posts today. I’d like to say it was because we wanted to be green, use less electricity and become less dependent on the electric dryer, but the truth is it’s just the easiest way to dry all of those cloth diapers. At least the house will be clear of all those drying racks on sunny days.

The house in the background is the neighbors (i.e. family). I didn’t want to take credit for the fencing and porching work they’ve done. But I did beat them to a clothesline.
