Making Spring

I can't wait for spring any longer. I have plants and crops to set out and these cold winter days just won't stop. We had flurries this morning! But I still set our my veggies and flowers and protected them too. Can't count on the cat to keep them warm. At least the plants are growing in spite of the cold nights. I have very hardy plants, herbs and veggies. But the good thing is that we have had lots of rain and the grass is tall. This means a good hay crop. I have baby chicks as well, but luckily they have fully feathered out and can take the cold in the coop now. I hope by May it warms up so my next hatch stays warm. Life is never boring on the farm.

Neighbors Farm

Our neighbors raise Boer goats and have had to separate their billy from the does. And they are building a new barn to house the goats and chickens.

The billy is now separated from his does with his pal. This was feeding time and hoof doctoring time.

The billy loves his grain trough.

Gracie the dog and her minions.

Rick and his second barn. Made from rough cut lumber and recycled old windows.
