We got a wood chipper! 

It’s used but it’s in great condition

And we only paid 50 bucks for it! MrGillis has already gone and bought the bagged attachment for it – a well invested $60 on top.

The duct tape is to help keep it sealed better, but after an inspection MrGillis seems to think that it’s no big deal.


Also looks like a possible flat tire- just air needed no repair.

This years model (which does have a mightier engine) goes for about 800 brand new. We’ll take our second hand deal all the way to the bank. We know the original and only owner and he is fastidious about general upkeep- duct tape being a recognized tool box requirement in places like Down East Maine.

We are going to make so much mulch.

Until next time, have a wicked good day!

This is the official website for Gillis Gardens, LLC. Gillis Gardens is a farm, run by myself and my wonderful husband. We believe in biodiversity, organic growing methods and doing things ourselves. I knit, crochet, make jewelry and sew. MrGillis builds, doing everything from our plumbing to our mechanical to our renovations. We are both active members of our little community. We both take care of the plants and animals. He weeds, I harvest. He spreads manure, I plant. We raise multiple breeds of chickens for eggs and meat. We have a herd of Alpacas that we shear every year for their beautiful fiber, which we then have milled into ultra luxurious yarn. We make our own maple syrup, preserves and pickles. We raise bees for honey and herbs for medicine. We also raise pigs for meat and fun. We are the parents of two young children, and consider that our most important job. Follow our adventures here and also on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.
