It was actually sunny today - we couldn't believe it. But you can believe that we ran right out there to get as much work done as possible.
Today started with a lovely bucket of milk. This was from Debbie and she wasn't even done yet. The bucket got so full I had to go in the house and strain it and THEN go back and finish milking her. Thanks Deb!
We fired up the lawnmower and I cut down the weeds as much as possible. I got a lot done but no one hates mowing more than I do. So I took the opportunity to get the tiller out also and scratch up some of that hated grass. I replanted these areas so they can be useful and not just green.
So that I remember what was planted where.. please bear with me with these overly detailed notes... The area south of the drive was a mix of oats, sunflowers, and buckwheat. This seed mix was from last year so I hope that it works. The area up on the hill by the little trees was planted in white clover and sunflowers. The black oil sunflowers were from last year, but they should still be viable.
I also tilled up a row directly below the pasture mix for potatoes. If the rain holds off tomorrow we can get them planted.
She actually did her part today by helping us finish up the fencing for the small pig yard. Before we could run the electric wire Nibbles and Debbie got in the pen and ate all the weeds down. Thanks ladies!
Hope everyone had a great day! Happy Thursday!
