Planted Corn

Today we planted our Painted Mountain corn. We borrowed our friends walk behind planter and put in 19 rows 87 feet long.

We've been getting alot of frost warnings over the past couple weeks. Not every warning has produced frost but, there has been a couple nights were we've gotten some. Our potatoes got nipped one night but, I think they'll be OK. That morning there was ice in the animals water buckets. That was last week. Everyone around here is getting tired of it and wishes they can just plant their veggies without worry. But, that's the way it is in the far north. Just have to live with it or move.

When we planted the corn today Kelli walked behind me to make sure there weren't any kernels that didn't get covered. She'd cover them up as we went since there was a few here and there that sat on the surface.

Been too busy to make any posts this past month. Besides all the farm work, the garbage route has been steadily getting more time consuming. After the holiday last week I think we had the highest increase ever by volume of garbage, due to people having cook-outs and doing spring cleaning. They kicked my butt last week. This week things lightened up substantially as is usual the following week of a holiday, so I'm glad for the reprieve.

Below are some spring time pictures our daughter Ryann took from around the farm I thought I'd add in conclusion to this short post. As the saying goes, " a picture is worth a thousand words".

Until Next Time

Heyas RL,

Sounds like you all had a busy day friday. I know that feeling well already this year. Hope the garbage route gets easier for you.

God bless,
