The tractor started and the soil is turned. The Lord provided an awesome window of time to get the soil turned. It was great to be back on the tractor enjoying sunshine. My arthritis is beginning to lighten up once again. I love warmer weather.
While working the soil I noticed many things are waking up for another season on Poverty Acres. The weeds are always in the lead so I must now get my tools sharp and ready.
MaryAnn wants to trim and spray the apple trees this weekend so I will be opening up our work shop and getting the equipment ready for her. She asked I get the lawn mower ready because she spotted some grass greening up. There is nothing like the smell of fresh cut grass to give us spring fever.
We have all of our sweet corn seed purchased but we must make a run for fertilizer. Every minute begins to count now. The barns need some paint. The sales area needs cleaned up and made ready. The picking buckets cleaned and ready. Our irrigation equipment made ready. The list goes on.
Most folks don't realize what it takes to raise good food so in my spare time I am working on growing a pizza. If I can ever finish this goal, MaryAnn can bring the kids from school to learn what it takes to grow the ingrediants on their pizza.
Got to get to work, was 25 degrees last night, getting up to 50 now. Have alot to do before the soil gets in the sixties. Then it is planting time on a much larger scale. See ya soon!
