Where Have You Been?
This past month has been a whirl-wind of activity. Springtime, here on the farm is always a busy time for me as I prepare for the public-school, farm-visits for our Outdoor Classroom Ecological Field Trips for 2nd grade level. I have been prepping and planting what I can in the garden, setting out blueberry plants and onion sets and just this past weekend we even planted sugar corn. Hope it makes it. The asparagus just poked its head through the ground two days ago.
Oh, and to encourage myself that spring was closer and closer, whenever the temperatures where 50 degrees or above, I hung out clothes on the my clothes line. See the grass isn't even green here like it is now.
|You don't have to hang everything out. Do like I do, |
Just the sheets, towels and jeans! Simple!
And, when I raised the cover on my cold frame yesterday,
|Wintered over from last year.|
|I am the last pick. I am a male.|
It proved to be one of the best Valentine presents of the decade.
I have been in love with Corgis ever since.This year, we have puppies going to Baltimore, Indiana, Cincinnati and maybe North Carolina!
So to say the least it has been busy here on the farm. And as soon as Outdoor Classrooms wraps up the end of May, we will be found in the hay fields and planting the corn fields all for the horses at the stable.
Oh and did I mention that my 4 new Barred-Rock pullets have all started laying! Yipee! Lots of eggs. And we have a litter of baby bunnies. Love it.
It is a busy time of year, but farm seasons are full of certain projects: But here's the thing: An idle mind is the devil's workshop, he that doesn't work, doesn't (shouldn't) eat. So stop right now and give thanks to God that you are alive, (still have your vision to be able to read this) and that you can work. Work IS a good thing, truly!
