A Week in Farm Life

April 6, 2011

Short sentences ala facebook or twitter, with some pictures.  It’s busy.

The hummers and buzzards arrived three weeks late this year.  No matter what the date, they arrive together.

Hank has stayed all winter, hopefully he won’t fly the coop.

The dogs have lots of outside “chores.”

And inside chores.

As if, asking will get him some pie!

Getting to the bottom of the barrel in the straw department.  Time to put the cows out to pasture.

Transplanting time too.

Thinking of tomato sauce already.

Snow predicted for tonight.  Sigh.

    Matron, thank you for all these wonderful posts, My family and I are going to be starting our own sustainable lifestyle in about 9 weeks. I can’t wait. Ypur posts, along with many others, including as much as I could find on Joel Salatin, have been invaluable. I especially enjoy your photography, picture worth a thousand words and all… Love the rants!

    I will put out my hummer feeders asap. We don’t get them until several weeks after you, but I want to be ready!

    I love the picture of the pie and dog! The way the light is falling on the pie is perfect.

    Still snowing?? Jeez. We had a frost the other night and I was surprised. 3+ weeks after average last frost date. It was light, no damage done, but still.

    Your photographs are always a delight. The pie picture is amazing!! I can “feel” the silkiness of the pastry. My heart is smiling…
    Thanks for sharing
