We had beautiful weather yesterday, so I spent a lot of time outside. I finally started working in my garden. Yes, this is really the first I’ve worked on it this year.
I got most of the old dead weeds piled up, but there’s a bit more. Weather permitting, I’ll have a large bonfire in the next couple of days. I still need to pick up the remains of last year’s planting (don’t judge me, 2012 was a rough year).
While working in the garden, I did notice the apple blossoms are just about to open.
I keep watching my big shade trees.
With the warmer weather, they are finally starting to get some leaves.
That’s a good thing.
I wanted to move the bovine to the Back Forty this weekend, but I had to wait.
Maxine is enjoying the sunny weather today.
Our temperature tomorrow is supposed to be 95*F. I can’t move them until they have some nice shade trees completely leafed out.
For now they will have to use their cattle shed for shade.
The goats have their barn for shade. They all have tanks with plenty of water.
Hopefully, I can get them back there in the next couple of days. Okay, after we get past our one really hot day. They’ll all be happier when they have shade trees.
That heat is also going to be very hard on my really pregnant goats.
With the up and down temperatures, some of them still have at least part of their winter coats. This wet month has also been hard on their feet. My son was good to me and held some goats yesterday while I trimmed hooves. That’s all I wanted for Mother’s Day! We’re supposed to finish that task this evening.
