Very busy

I've been fairly busy lately, and also haven't heard much to post about.

Also, I've been very busy our at the farm.

This is our second year with the 6 acres. We have a wonderful pasture planted with help from "real" farmers. (There is nothing more embarrassing than having to pull a Craftsman garden tractor up next to a $100,000 John Deere.)

We are also going to try to get a jump on the Japanese beetles this year.

Our garlic wintered over very well, and has now been divided. We planted several potatos, five willow trees, lettuce, spinach, peas and our asparagas is coming up (although it is only in its second year). Our raspberries and strawberries look good. Looks like one of the apple trees is dead.

We're waiting for a Yurt to come from the Pacific Yurt company. It'll be a place to stay from time to time on the land, and give us a place to hang when we're working there.

I'm also thinking about rehab-ing the barn.

Good luck with your gardens all!

And since I probably won't get back before Sunday...

I'm thankful for the rain this week, the warm weather, and the Chicago Cubs.

Feel free to add stories about your garden, and your thanks.
