And We’re Off

30 Jun

If all went as planned, Mom and I left for Indianapolis to spend the night with my nephew.  This is the first of my pre-scheduled posts.

Trace is not looking like she’ll give me a July baby.

I decided I would split the top two responses to my survey.  Including my FB responses, it was pretty evenly split between posting farm content (with vacation stuff added in if I got time) and nothing because I’m on vacation.

I have several posts prescheduled with farm content.  I’ll try to at least give you an update on where I’m at on those days I don’t have something scheduled.  But, I might not get it done.

Hopefully, you’ll enjoy the farm posts, and I know I can’t get enough of talking about genealogy and history and cemeteries.  Hopefully, you won’t find any of those posts too bad.

If I know myself, I’ll already be missing my critters and worried about them.  But I have left everyone in capable hands.

Odds and Ends

18 May

My corn was planted this weekend.  After a cold, wet start to the spring planting season, farmers have been planting as quickly as they can to get everything planted. Now we just have to hope for a good growing season.

My garden was tilled this weekend as well.  I’m afraid to plant because it’s supposed to be pretty cool this coming weekend.  I’ll probably wait until next week to plant.

It’s smaller this year because I just can’t keep up with everything.  Also, we are leaving for two weeks for vacation this summer, so I need to have a bit less to deal with.

Salem–just because he’s cute.

Um. At some point, I need to decide what to do with the blog while we are gone–just post a couple of farm pictures each day or maybe give a few vacation updates.

The chickens and goose are sharing a nest in their new accommodations.

I’m still working on getting my yards into shape.  I did manage to get a lot more tamed down this past weekend. Caroline was helping me with cleaning up some scrub mulberry.

I even managed to get everything under the windmill cleaned up.

I have been cutting a lot of asparagus for the last week.  It just came up like crazy when we turned warm.  I’ve already cut more than I got all of last year.

I did my first planting of the year.  I put in some rhubarb.

Hopefully, my dog will not destroy it.

My New Friend

1 May

I brought a new friend home with me.  After months of supply chain issues making it impossible to get a new camera to replace mine (I’ve been using the old backup camera for months), I was finally able to order one to be delivered to a Best Buy close to me.

All buckled in and ready to come home.

I confess, I ordered this when I was totally sleep deprived.  I was just going to get the body and use the lenses I already had, but I ended up ordering the kit with the lenses.  I am thrilled.  The new lens is way lighter and makes it easier to not have shake with my long shots.  I am practicing on birds.

I think I’m in love!

You might have photo overload for a while as I’m playing and getting comfortable with it.
