Random-ocity on Monday

There’s a squirrel that has taken up residence in a tree just inside the Back Forty.  I have plenty of opportunities to take pictures when I’m out there.

For some reason, he (or she) didn’t seem to want to have a video taken.  But you can see it HERE.

I checked my bean field over the weekend.  It’s sprouting!

That means we’re on our way to harvest in the fall.  Because we no-till, there’s still the leftovers from last year’s crops.  Those roots hold the soil in place to keep the soil from eroding.

I also had my uncle come and till my garden on Saturday.  We had a brief shower while he was tilling.  Then it cleared off until the overnight.

I rained all day Sunday, so I had to wait until today (about thirty minutes ago) to start planting.  It will probably be an all week event.  Plus we have rain in the forecast for most of the week, so I don’t know when I’ll get my row stuff planted.

I’m excited to have a garden again.  I really missed not having one last summer.

Some Monday Randomocity

My beans were planted yesterday before the rains came.  That’s a good thing.  I’m not looking forward to a good farming year because prices are way down, but I hope it will still make my farm payment.  With the beans getting planted before the rains came sweeping across the plains, it makes me think Oh What a Beautiful Morning.  I don’t want to make light of the severe weather that passed through my state and elsewhere yesterday.  I’m very grateful that we did not receive any damaging storms here.

Last night, I had to have the (new) vet come out and look at Bambi.  She ripped her udder.  It’s much better after being stitched up.

Llenny seems to think it’s fun out in pasture.

Last night, I heard a noise and figured out he was sounding the alarm.  When I went to check out what he was upset about, I found it was a deer.

I’m going to quit listening to that boy if all he gets upset about is Stella and deer.

First of 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.
