Another Hour in the Day, Anyone?
Apr 03, 2012
Hectic about covers it around here the past week or so. Sorry for the absence of any real posts the past few days, but between bottle feeding baby goats, milking, our full time jobs off the farm, bottle feeding baby goats, visits from family and friends, and bottle feeding baby goats, time for online fun, or gardening, has been limited. lol
It felt a little warmer out this morning when we ventured to the barn in the dark, and I don't see any frost out there on anything, so that's encouraging. Now that we're starting to get into a rhythm with the new barn babies, I'm hoping to get some gardening tasks taken care of yet this week!
Our neighbor had something come up and wasn't able to come down with his tiller, so I'm going to get my rototilling time in, after all. Which, while it will take much longer with our front tine tiller than his tractor-mounted one, I don't mind to be honest. There's something rewarding about looking back at a freshly tilled garden when you're done.
Also planning some more prep work on the new herb garden spot, and want to finally get some lettuce seeds started. Even though we're still seeing some frost some mornings, I think lettuce would probably be fine in a tub on the deck. Can always cover it quickly if I need to.
The little basil seedlings continue to grow well, and I'm starting to thin them out. Can't wait for that fresh basil!
The tulips in the front flower beds have survived the frosts just fine so far - in the mornings they don't look so happy, but by afternoon they're standing tall and pretty. Wanted to snap a couple pics last night, but by the time chores and baby goat feeding were over, I'd lost the light.
Loving - in the few minutes I've been able to steal out here each day - reading about and seeing pics of all our fellow gardeners & farmers adventures. Keep on growin' it forward, folks!
