sapping has come to an end

   Another season of sap collecting has come to an end rather quickly with this warm weather. But, that is alright because we can concentrate on other work. The greenhouse is going well the plants are doing good with the bright sun beaming down and the heating cost is low this year--there is always an up side to most everything.

   Today we let the chickens out on higher ground and they had a ball. Many took to flying and others after gorging them selves on larva from insects that are starting to hatch dug fresh dirt up rolled around in it then took a nap right in that very hole.

   After burning some of the fields I disc-ed and harrowed so to plant some peas and beets plus with the high tunnel there should be some early summer crops this year.
