Only 66 days ’til Spring!
I just keep counting the days down, because before we know it, it’s gonna be spring and the world here on the Farm is gonna get busy, busy, busy!
The hurry-up-and-wait every year is a bit mind boggling…but it’s also a huge part of Farm life.
Well, life in general, right?
I’m already looking at dates to start collecting eggs for firing up the incubator.
I’m squirreling the money away to build an inexpensive hoop greenhouse to extend our tomato season.
I’m watching for the absolute right time to start those peppers and tomatoes in the house.
At the same time, I’m watching the weather for cold snaps.
I’m watching my hay stack dwindle as the Merry Mares eat to stay warm (and fat and healthy).
I’m waiting for just the right moment to give them the next (and last) oat straw bale to destroy, eat and sleep in…though they still have a pretty good amount of the first one, so I’m not frantic there.
And, I’m waiting to bottle the summer started green tomato wine, the grapefruit wine and the apple wine…and start another batch of something…banana maybe? Or another green tomato? Or maybe a hard blueberry lemonade?
It’s only 66 to days to Spring.
