Spring IS almost here...

Yes my dear friends....Winter is almost over...YAY! Spring is just about here....Almost all of the snow is gone...temps in the 50's and 60's..yes...Spring is near. Time to get those seeds started....if you haven't already. I am starting mine, Tomato's, green peppers, Onions, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Head lettuce, and Herbs. I can't wait to get in the gardens..of course, I have plenty time to wait since there is water everywhere. Now come the days of wading through mud, water and...the dreaded... " poop soup" Every farm/homestead, that has farm animals can relate to this. With the melting snow, comes clean up time as well. Little "treasures" popping up everywhere. Feed bags that have blown around during that one winter storm we had...( Pick one, there were plenty) Trash in the ditches that had fallen from cars as they drove by...( because people would never just throw it out of their windows, ) Time to "freshen up" those flower beds and garden areas...get them ready to plant. And time to clean out those animal houses. My biggest thing about Spring is..... DON"T OVER DO IT! Yes, we have been cooped up for months and the fresh air is amazing..and we feel we have endless energy...but we all know...we will over do it that first good week. I am going to TRY not too. Farm animals are birthing their young...poultry that haven't laid an egg in weeks or MONTHS are now starting to lay again. Spring wakes us all up lets get out there, but body has been resting a bit over the take it easy...don't over do it!!
