There were a few warm days when trees and flowers burst into bloom. Violets cover the ground, along with Little Blue Eyes. The peonies have risen above ground and formed buds. Surprises abound in nearly every flower bed. The lilacs have produced beautifully.
Today, we're cooler and "widespread frost" is forecast for tomorrow.
Ducklings are hatching two days before I had even planned on checking the incubator. This morning, I had to drive to the feed store for poultry starter and search the barns for my brooder accessories.
Seedlings came up in the small portion of the garden where I planted them a couple weeks ago. Will I manage to cover them up for tonight?
We're working feverishly on the local farmers' market that will be set up in our county and hope it will be a success.
The federal taxes are done and mailed, but state tax must also be filed before long.
It seems there is much, much more to do than there are hours in the day. Who thinks the goats will produce a kid or two today?
