Farm Girl Note: March 2017

Farm Girl Note:

    Though the harvest on the farm has slowed down the farmers are keeping busy!;-) Fencing in our entire property (100+ acres) has been a big job but we (and, ahem, hopefully the neighbors 🙂   are enjoying the benefits of secure pens for the cows. It is getting to be less often that when the phone rings we don’t all yell “cows are out!” and head for our shoes before even answering 😉 that used to be quite common at our house. We are grateful for kind neighbors but everyone is much happier with secure perimeters!

Friday we got 12,000 pounds of Chaff Haye delivered. Several of us went over to unload it from the 18 wheeler into our truck and flatbed and then into our storage area.

Flowers blooming and new life on the farm are sure reminders that spring is almost here!
