Today I go to the museum. I have found that I am guarding my time jealously for my ‘volunteer job’ at the museum. It is something I enjoy that much. I should finish up the journals of Mr. Ash today and get to start on some other absorbing project.
Terry is now plowing. All spring work is right on time…we always start the second week in March. This year is normal.
We still don’t know the water situation, but everyone is getting ready anyway. Although, only 60% of the ground every farmer farms is only what is getting ready. (Did that make sense?)
If the water situation improves then everyone can plant more…we have until the middle of May to plant… until then we move forward with just the 60%.
The soil is turning good, just the right amount of moisture.
Old corn ground must be either burned off-then disked, then plowed, or grazed down/disked up/ and then plowed. We are NOT fans of burning….we believe in turning the plants over to improve the soil…manure is another great way improve soil (We are still of the old school :) )
This weekend Mr. Davis will remove the cows. Then I will be cow-less again for another year.
So another day begins…our night got down to about 22* but today we are predicted to head up into the 60s.
Spring is finally here!
