The days are quiet here lately, but in the weeks to come the Garden Spot will be alive with little voices--loud little voices. Our grandson Jacob will be here next week, and when New Baby Girl arrives her big sisters will be here, so I am enjoying the peace and quiet. These quiet days are the ones I longed for as the school semester began to wear me down. We accomplished a lot over the Memorial Day weekend, especially getting the garden planted. We started tomatoes and peppers in early March inside. The tomatoes are pathetic, while the peppers looks pretty decent. So come along with me as I take an afternoon walk around the Garden Spot.
Meet the neighbor boys. Cute, aren'they? But don't get too attached because they won't be around for long.
The boys go by their ear tag numbers; no names so we don't get too attached. There are actually 4 steers and they are bad boys. They have already escaped once. Two traveled miles away, but were safely located and returned home. They seemed to have learned their lesson: the grass really isn't greener on the other side.
The garden is planted. Now we wait for the goodness of Mother Earth--and the weeds.
The hay was cut today. This is our neighbor's. Looks pretty good.
Laid out neatly in rows, the hay will dry for a few days then be bailed for Sundance.
Speaking of the old boy. He's on his way to the front pasture. He only grazes for a couple of hours each day; he's carrying a bit too much weight.
Still, a handsome fellow.
The Girls are doing well, though they are a scruffy bunch. They molted early in the winter and just haven't grown their feathers, but they are happy, giving 4-6 eggs a day. Not bad for 8 hens.
Sundance's friends are eager to head out to pasture too.
I love horses.
Sundance greets his friends and then they all get down to grazing.
I hope you enjoyed our walk about.
Now, I'd like to walk around your garden.
