Sunshine and Water

12 May

We’ve had rain and sunshine which has made for some good growing conditions.  Today’s sunshine made the goats happy too.

I could see that the corn is coming up.  The tall grass to the left is rye.  We’ll spray that and use it as weed control where we plant our pumpkins for the pumpkin patch.  We also have popcorn and Indian corn planted.

Up north, it’s been empty since I put the big boys back on the front pasture.

Luckily, the grass is growing quite well because I’ll put them back up here when we have June babies.  That way my new moms won’t be out in the Back Forty.

Of course, that mean’s I’ll be moving goats again before too long.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow, I have the items for this week listed at the top of my side bar.

Today I’m sharing with Good Fences and Skywatch Friday.

    Sunshine and rain are a great combination. We’re to a point now, where we need more rain. Your stuff is growing well. I hope all of your crops do well.

      It really is a delicate balance between the two. Hope you get some rain.

      There’s always work on the farm. I never worry about being bored.

    Hello, looks like everything is growing well. You will be busy, but then you are always busy! Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

      It truly is a circle. Thanks for hosting each week.

    Sunshine and water – both essential. I have been watering by hand for weeks now as we’ve had no rain at all. The forecast, from time to time, is a tantalising ‘60% chance of rain’ but it never materialises.

      I’m so sorry to hear that. Hope you get some relief soon.

    Looks like you are having a nice spring. It’s always fun to see what your goats are up to. I enjoyed your fences. That last shot was especially pretty.

      It’s been okay so far. I just hope the right combination of rain and sun keeps it up. Thanks so much for stopping by.

    Hooray for sunshine and rain…and for corn coming up! It’s been so wet here our corn is going in late. Hopefully next week if the sun ever shines again! 🙂

      I do hope you get it in the ground soon. It’s such a roll of the dice with weather and farming.

    Neat fence shots ~ rain must mean mud too ~

    Happy Weekend to you ~ ^_^

      Luckily my farm drains well with all the hills, but we do have some muddy spots.

    Beautiful Spring — but oh my gosh, a farmer’s work is never done! It’s amazing to me to read about all you do (and the way you do it all with joy! )

      It truly is a way of life and not just a job!
