Well in between the rains we keep on getting stuff done.
Got in the garden with the disc and the quack digger to work in the manure. Our rear tine tiller has a hard time working anything bulky into the soil. Looking at getting one that has reversible tines in the future.
Tammy got our peas planted.
Moved the little chicken coop we built last year over to where Tammy wants to pasture the goats this year so they'll have some shelter. Worked on the fence for that as well. Going to try 3 strands of electric and 4' snow fence.
Moved the last 2 rabbits from one set of cages to their tractors and spent a morning scooping bunny poop and hauling it out to the garden.
Bought 2 bull calves yesterday for pretty decent prices. I really have to get the camera working.
Going to buy the bulldozer today and hopefully get it delivered this weekend. Then I can get the humps worked out of the feedlots and really get them ready to plant.
Since we got the calves so late I may be able to get a cutting of hay off the pasture this year before they are ready to graze. I will have to walk it soon to see how it looks. I walked it last week and saw some clover in the new seeding that I didn't see last year after we took the oats off.
The cherry trees are ready to leaf out, the apple trees have started and the lilacs are greening up.
If it wasn't so wet it would be almost perfect around here.
