We're starting to get geared up for spring planting. The fuel truck has come and filled the farm tanks with diesel fuel and gasoline. Seeds have been delivered and planting will begin once the soil is warmer and dry. The alfalfa is greening up and growing, soon we'll start baling hay, hopefully the first of May.
Also we've opened the gates so the cows can get down to the permanent pasture. We're very happy when that happens, so are the cows! I think most of the pictures are self explanatory but in case you don't speak cow 'talk' I'll make some comments.
then turn to the left at the corner of the field, they're still running.
The excitement was all over an hour later and they were grazing quietly and peacefully.
One of the activities has been to pick up all the sticks that came out of the trees over winter.
I sent the sticks home with them, told them they could burn them when their family has their next hot dog roast.
Weekly grocery shopping is not my normal, my last stockup shopping was March 23rd. I have a large chest freezer with plenty of vegetables, meat and fruit. We drink the milk our cows produce and I have my own laying hens.
But I did leave the the farm to make a trip to a local seed (seeds as in corn, soybeans, wheat and such) & supply business.
