First of May

1 May

Happy May Day!  Blessed Beltane!  It’s the first of May.  That means, a progress report on what’s going on up north.  I actually have progress to report this month.


They came and tiled the corner where I want to plant pumpkins.

They had to remove the fallen tree to do that.  My nephew also removed a couple of other old tree stumps.  It’s a lot easier now to see what a big space it really is.  I can plant around the corner to the middle tree in the background.


While they were tiling, they looked at my crop maps.  Productivity was not very good in this area of my corn/bean field, so they also ran a line of tile up into the field.  It should help my yields there too.

Hopefully, by the first of next month, we’ll get this area disked and planted with pumpkins.

    Teresa, do you do your own planting?

    • Teresa May 2, 2015 at 11:45 am #

      Well, I always have, but that was just a few hills. My nephew thinks he has it figured out how to plant with the planter since we’re doing about an acre.

    I hope we’ll eventually see a before and after view of that field of pumpkins!

    Looks great. You’ll have a big pumpkin patch.

    • Teresa May 3, 2015 at 8:27 am #

      I hope so. And I hope people want to come buy their pumpkins directly from my pumpkin patch.

    That’ll be a nice sized punkin’ patch! I hope it goes/grows well!
