About time to add a little something.
Got the pig back 314 pounds processed. Got 63 pounds of sausage and lots of bacon and ham. Yumm.
Can't wait till I can grow my own. T went the same day I picked up the pig so the meat should be ready for pickup any day.
Started some tomatoes last week. Still really a bit early but I want to try a trick someone told me about.
Start them and when they get a few leaves, transplant them again and bury them deeper in the soil. The stems make more roots and when you finally plant them outside they really take off.
Debating whether I should get some plastic cloches and try for peanuts this year. At 100 days for the early Spanish it's an iffy proposition without the cloches. Don't really need the peanuts but it would be nice for variety.
During the big cold snap last week our wood burner took a crap. The stovepipe in the chimney broke and one of the blowers in back stopped working. I noticed some small holes around the door as well. Lot of work ahead this summer to get it back in shape.
Have a few last minute seeds to get around, get the tiller tuned up and we should be about ready for spring. It can't come soon enough.
