It continues to show the signs of spring on the farm. Baby lambs jump and play in the pasture, kittens mew in the barn and the grass continues to turn bright green. Today after a night of drizzle, the cows and horses are all stretched out soaking up the warm sunshine. It’s too wet to do much farming right now, but it sure is a great day for stretching out!

Why is it that the grass in the lawn out paces the grass in the pasture? I guess its because we don’t eat it, but it sure eats into our time having to mow. I guess that is one more signal of spring and the freshly mowed grass sure smells good! So, no complaints, just the facts I guess.

We have started to prep the gardens. That season will be upon us soon. In fact, early crops like peas, lettuce, radish and even potatoes could already be planted. No worries however, the warm soil will catch us all up once it dries out again. I will be preoccupied for a little while getting this years corn crop out. That job too will begin soon.

I guess we have much to do, all sorts of jobs, with just enough down time mixed in for the whole kit and kaboddle , to make for a very happy life!

I am surprised that you haven’t yet figured out a use for all your yard grass, so you don’t have to mow it. Other than sheep-mowing or baling it, I mean. So I know you are an HGTV fan – wondered if you’ve caught the “We Bought the Farm” show. It’s pretty good.

I will keep and eye out for the show. Connie doesn’t like the “presents” the sheep leave behind in the lawn…so we mow. LOL

So cute! I wish they’d stay little! That beige one is unique. Love the calico! Are you keeping them or giving them away?

We will be giving some away…then “fixing” mommy.
